Tassels (check lace and craft stores)

Nylon string


Step 1:

String a length of nylon through one hole of a bull clip.

Step 2:

Secure the nylon string by tying a knot.

Step 3:

String the beads through the nylon randomly or according to your desired pattern. Remember to add a few heavy beads for weight, or else your tassels will get blown away.

Step 4:

Attach a tassel after the last bead by stringing through the tassel's head.

Step 5: String the nylon back through the beads and the bull clip hole.

Step 6: Tie a knot and cut off the excess nylon.

Repeat the process three more times to make a complete set of four tassels.
