Session 5 / Handmade Tassels & Mermaid Garden!

Hello! This project was a lot of fun to work on and I had a secret agenda! I knew I wanted to put together a mermaid garden and this spurred me onward to make one!
There were some sweet geese there that morning at Ada Hayden Heritage Park in Ames, Iowa. They definitely kept a watchful eye on us!
The process of making the tassels is shown here in the sets of photos. After I made all of the tassels I cut the ends of each one with fabric scissors so that they were each the same length. The eight tassels were spaced out equally around the terracotta pot. I also needed to use some glue to attached the tassels to the pot since the tassels were a little heavy.
For the mermaid garden, I already had the shells and the mermaid and then I added some succulents.


I love how this turned out and I plan to make one more tassel/terracotta pot project soon!

Thanks so much and happy solar eclipse day!!
