Come your next backyard dinner, these tassels will keep the wind from blowing your tablecloth into the neighbor's pool.
Martha Stewart Living, June 2007
Wrap strands of colored raffia around a 3 1/2-by-2-inch piece of cardboard several times.
Thread a piece through the top; knot. Cut raffia bottom to create fringe.
Place a fishing weight inside bundle toward top; tie a knot below using more raffia. Knot ends to form a loop. Make four tassels total. Sew decorative buttons onto each corner of the tablecloth for hanging.
