Add tassels and trim to your DIY throw pillows to take them up a notch. If your living room couch or entryway armchair could use a new pillow, or if the pillow you already have could use some sprucing up, consider trying out this darling project. Tassels are so trendy and add a special detail to your projects. By adding layers of lovely trip to the front of the pillow, you really make it into something special! Best of all, this is a no sew pillow. Or rather, it takes very little sewing. You only have to hand stitch on the tassels! This project shouldn't take you long at all, and your pillow will look all the lovelier because of it.

I love tassels! I would like to make some earrings.

Besides the pillows, I'd add tassels to my greeting cards, any kind of blanket that I've made, and just as an embellishment on a banner. thanks.

I would go tassel crazy necklace, bracelet, earrings, pillows, horse bridle, curtains blankets...I can't think of anything I wouldn't want tassels on

I'd add tassels to a pair of earrings.But not this kind!

I may add tassels to a triangular shawl on each side but not on the center point that is in the back.

Adorable pillow! I would add tassels to the scarf I plan to crochet for my granddaughter. I also like the idea of adding tassels to the corners of a pillow.
