"Junk"le Bells in January

It's the first installment of "Junk"le Bells ...all year 'round....!!

My first "Junk"le Bells project is tassel ornaments made from vintage glass knobs.  I have both black and clear and thought they both worked well.

I made the tassel and threaded the cord up through the knob and then topped it off with a black vintage button.  (Just a few of those laying around here!)

The fibers aren't old but I think all of them were purchased at Goodwill or garage sales.  I really love what I call "fiber bundles" tied to anything!

The pretty beads came from a garage sale where a woman was ending her craft sale career and was cutting way back.  I bought some beautiful trims from her!

So, these are ornaments for my "junk" tree next Christmas, but I'm tempted to just leave them hanging in my sewing room for awhile.

For more pictures on how I made these, check out the flickr group here.
