Graduation Tassel Christmas Tree Ornament

I have a lot of blank/empty glass and plastic ornaments and wanted to do something a little different.  This ornament is decorated with my sons 2008 high school tassel.  I first tried using the glass ornament but the 2008 was a wee bit too big.  I thought that if I pushed it through it would shatter the glass so I opted for the plastic ornament.  It was a tight fit but it went through.

The first thing I did was sew the cord of the tassel to the back of the tassel. Then I sewed the top of the tassel up and through the silver top of the ornament. Going through the holes a couple of times. By sewing the tassel to the ornament you can manage where the 2008 emblem will be inside the ornament.  Then I just wrapped the extra thread around and around the top part of the ornament.
