D.I.Y. Triple Tassel Necklace

I have been seeing a ton of tassels out and about lately and I have to say I am really digging it. Tassels have a sort of boho-airness to them that makes me think of summer days spent by the pool in Mexico (not oddly specific imagery at all) and I tried to emulate that vibe in a necklace.

Our Upcycled Christmas

I was shocked to hear that, according to the EPA, the volume in household waste in the United States increases 25% in the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day! There is so much waste around this time of year but there doesn’t have to be. That is why this year A and I are making a conscious effort to create a much more eco-friendly Christmas.
