Is it safe to say this year has been the year of the tassel? I mean everything has been tasselized, and truthfully, I've avoided the trend at all costs (except for here, I totally caved). But, I love being inspired by nature. So when I realized that nature's very own tassel came in the form of a pine needle, I jumped on that band wagon quicker than 49 fans are jumping off (sorry, had to throw that in there, my husband is a niner fan). 

I saw a photo using one of "nature's tassels" as a bow, and it was about the cutest thing I'd ever seen, but I didn't want to be a copycat, so I racked my brain for a new idea. 

I decided that if I couldn't use the tassel on a package, I would settle for the second cutest thing ever - a pine needle tassel stir stick. Duh.

I didn't want to neglect the other types of pine needles, so I included them too. Oh, and I used some rosemary. Because, who doesn't love rosemary?
