HOW TO: Make Your Own Tassel

 Learn how to make your own tassels in these easy steps.


Step 1.
Materials needed:
  • Crochet thread of your choice
  • Pair of scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • Cardboard
Step 2.
  • Cut cardboard to about 5" (12cm) in height
  • The height of the cardboard will determine the length of the tassel.
  • Stick the beginning of the thread to the cardboard with sticky tape.


    Step 3.

    • Wind the thread around the cardboard.
    • The more you wind, the more lush your tassel will be.
    • Cut and stick the final end of the thread to the cardboard, as show in the example.

    Step 4.

    • With another piece of thread, tie a knot in the center of the wound thread.
    • Make sure you tie the knot tightly.

    Step 5.

    • Turn cardboard over and cut the thread right in the center.

    Step 6.

    • This is what it should like so far.

    Step 7.

    • Remove the thread now from the cardboard.

    Step 8.

    • Use another piece of thread.
    • Wind the thread snug around the neck of the tassel.
    • 1/4" should look fine
    • Make a tight knot

    Step 9.

    • You can thread one or more beads on the top thread to embellish your tassel..

    Step 10.
    • Cut the tassel to your desired length.

    Step 11.
