From salt shaker to tassel

I made this sweet rose-sprigged porcelain salt shaker into a beautiful tassel. I pulled the loop of a premade tassel (bought on sale in a discount fabric outlet) up through the filler hole on the bottom of the shaker, using floral wire fed through the holes on top. I attached the floral wire to decorative cording and twisted tightly, and added ribbon trim to the top to cover the connection. More cording was hot-glued around the bottom edge of the shaker.
