Graduation Tassel Ornament

 Graduation, the big day everyone spends years working towards is finally there.  Once you don the cap and gown, walk across the stage for your diploma, and throw your cap high in the air, those items usually get stuffed in your closet.  Yeah some hang the tassels with their high school colors from the rear view mirror before heading off to college, but soon those too are stuffed in a box.  Same goes for your college graduation paraphernalia.  The newest and super easy way to honor your success and the memories of those school days, is by making an ornament with your tassels.  This way you can bring them out once a year at Christmas to serve as a reminder of those times. Plus, you could make it to hang somewhere at your graduation party if you'd like. It's an ornament anyone could make!

Excited to try this out, I made these 4 graduation tassel ornaments representing my husband's and my school associations.  Decided to surprise him with it for a Christmas gift, although I did this more for myself since it's not really his cup of tea.  But I figure he'd enjoy his school pride represented on our Christmas tree right alongside mine.

Materials : All you need are bulbs (plastic or glass) which you can get for $1 or less, and the tassels, that's it!
Note : Now when you go to purchase the bulbs make sure you bring the tassel with you to verify it can fit into the bulb. Totally learned from that mistake.
Time : They take less than 5 minutes to assemble and then VOILA, you made yourself an ornament.  Easy peazy lemon squeezy.
