    I would take the tassels off and put them on an armoire or chest of drawer knobs. Use the cording around the perimeter of a throw pillow.

    I have altered the lengths of tie backs with tassels and hung them on door knobs, around lamps, and on pillows. Hope this helps.

    I had only one and added a piece of ribbon (to tie) and use it as a necklace over a black turtleneck sweater...looks amazing.

    These are beautiful!! I would attach them to a wide ribbon, about the height of your cutrains (Like the movies, when the people would summon a butler for assistance). Then put a medium-sized bell on the other end of the ribbon. They would look great with red ribbon, or christmas green ribbon!!!! They are very beautiful, no matter what you do with them!! Use velvet ribbon, about 3 inches wide!! Yes!!

    Why not use them as 'brackets' to hold up a small shelf?

    I make envelope purses. They work well on the tip of the envelope or as a closure.

    Also, I tie them to old antique keys for my antique furniture. Cut the length off though

    Definitely repurpose the cording as it is very expensive to buy. Looks like nice quality too.

    Several ideas. Use to tie back outdoor curtains. Attach to a girls pillows. Wrap around lamp bases. You could even use a tie back to hold a shower curtain it would give it a fancy look.

  • Hand from hardware on furniture - buffet or armoire.

    use them as tiebacks for your drapery, drawer pulls, or as decorative accents on your hanging planters

    To make really fancy tassels, add wooden beads to the top of the tassel or tiny seed beads around the head. Thread the beads on a piece of yarn in a row, then wrap it a few times around. Just knot to secure the ends. These could be used on clothing or presents or even a tassel garland.

    You could use them in various ways such as hanging from a door handle or shower curtain rod or curtain rod as just an accessory as they are very attractive. If you have blinds in any of your windows, you could fasten one of the tassels to the cord of the blind.
