To make the tassels, I used a small piece of cardboard and wrapped it around about 18 times -the size of your cardboard will determine your tassel’s length, and the number of times you wrap it around will determine the fullness of the tassel.

Once it’s all wrapped, use another piece of yarn to tie one end together.  Then snip the loops you made at the opposite end.

Once it’s snipped use another piece, about 1/2 inch from the top to bundle them all together.  Tie it with a knot and your tassel is finished.

I picked the beads up at the dollar store and a bead store, you can find something similar here, if you’re in the market.

I used regular kitchen twine to string them.

It was rather therapeutic.

And sometimes on those days it can all feel a bit too much, and not enough at the same time.

It took me a few days to string all my beads, and while I worked on them I felt like God whispered in my ear, in the midst of some hopelessness, and tiredness in me, “just keep stringing your beads, they will add up to something beautiful”.  The beads are like the steps on the journey, they seem so many, they seem to lead nowhere, they feel like not enough some days….but I’m trusting they’ll add up to something beautiful.
