Luxe Tassel Fireplace Garland With SmithHonig | NYNR Challenge

Aren't fireplaces such lovely things? The warmth they provide and their architectural beauty make them a piece to covet. And covet them I do! I don't have a functional fireplace but I do have a salvaged mantel that I love to dress up. Recently I painted it black and the velvety finish begged for a luxurious bohemian garland. I paired some stunning silk tassels with jewelry making material to create a luxe tassel fireplace garland and I'm excited to share the tutorial with you today.

Luxe Tassel Fireplace Garland With SmithHonig

My home does not have a fireplace so I bought a salvaged wood mantel through craigslist. I've painted it  twice and moved it around the house to have an extra little something wherever I've felt like I needed it. Mine may not heat up the home, but it sure is fun to decorate!

I wanted a luxurious feeling garland to pop against the velvety black paint of the mantel. Thanks to SmithHonig's beautiful silk tassels, I've created a luxe boho tassel garland that adds a stylish touch to this part of the dining room. This is just one of the projects I'm working on in my dining room and I can't wait to share the rest of them with you. Make sure you continue following along!

Supplies To Make The Garland:

Chain, Clasp, and Jump Rings Set
Silk Tassel from SmithHonig
Needle Nose Pliers

How To Make The Garland:

This garland is so easy to make and uses just a few materials. It's perfect! I did most of it while watching an episode of my favorite show (The Office, if you're wondering). I chose to work with SmithHonig's silk tassels for this project. They have a luxe feeling about them and the detailed brass bead fits into my style perfectly. These tassels are large and add a dose of gorgeous impact anywhere they're used. I'm using the color "lotus" but there's other colors too so you can find something you love.

The tassels have a long loop for hanging and this loop is larger than what I need for this project. In the video, I share how to shorten the loop without damaging the tassel itself. It's a completely reversible way of doing it.

Once the loop is shortened, I took two jump rings and attached them to one another. I then attached one of the rings to the loop at the top of the tassel. A pair of standard needle nose pliers works easy enough for this but if you have jewelry making pliers those may be easier to use on such a small piece.

After that, attach a jump ring to either end of the jewelry making chain. This makes it easy to hang the garland on a standard nail head. Then it's just a matter of attaching the loose jump ring on each of the tassels to the chain. In the video I shared how I determined where to hang each tassel.

Isn't that easy? Let's get it hung!

I am so in love with how this turned out. It turned out just as beautiful as I had hoped it would. It's the perfect garland for this mantel and it exudes the vibe I'm going for in this room. I call it Parisian Boho. What do you think? Does that description fit?
