Here is another multi-purpose Christmas decoration/present-topper. Leather tassels add a touch of luxury to a wrapped present, and can be kept and re-used by the recipient.

The tassels could also be used as keyrings, worn as pendants, added to bags or simply hung on the Christmas tree!

Using some metallic leather adds a bit of seasonal sparkle, particularly when contrasted with soft suede. Whether monochrome or multi-coloured, leather tassels are easy to make- you can find instructions in this previous post.

The tassels are so pretty in their own right, that plain wrapping paper is all that’s needed to show them off!
