How To Make a Yarn Tassel Banner


One of the reason I love having my own office is because I get to decorate it as often as I like.

In every other part of my house, I compromise on the decor, but in my office, I have complete creative control.

To spruce up my space for spring and Easter, I made an easy yarn tassel banner. To make it all I used was brightly colored yarn.

Target Frugal Home Decor Finds

I have been updating my entire home one room a time. I've also been sticking to a strict budget for each room. To do that, I do a lot of window shopping looking or deals on home decor. I like nice things, but I won't pay full price if I don't have too.

Today I'm going to show you some of the things I bought for my home. Some of the things I'm thinking of buying, and some of what I liked but didn't buy.

What I Liked But Didn't Buy

Marshalls:

I really liked the colors on the Jonathan Adler journals for $2. At that price I wanted to see them in my office, but the inside was just plain paper and I couldn't justify buying another journal with no intended use for it.
 These Under Armor headbands were a steal and had it been another day, I would have bought them. I was shopping for nightstand tables and had a strict budget. I figured, if I didn't spend my entire budget, I'd go back and get these for $4.

Now, I'm going to come out and tell you something that had better change your life from here on out.

If you are not having friends over to your home because it's not perfect, you're missing out on life. 

It doesn't take much to host a get-together for real friends.  

Real friends are those people who don't care that your sink has dishes in them, or you have an unfurnished living room. Real friends want to be with you, not be impressed by your home.
For my real friends, I can put together a frugal 15 minute beverage party and they'll come right over. After 10 minutes, we'll be laughing so hard and enjoying each others company. 
To put together a 15 minute beverage party you won't go to the store and buy decorations. What you'll do is gather up some of the nicest decor, and dishes you own.
Using said decor and dishes, you will arrange them to create a comfortable location for your guest to hangout. Just keep arranging and rearranging until the space looks nice to you.
Now, it's time to create a simple beverage to sip on while you and your friends hang out.
