How to make a tassel and what to do with them!

supplies needed:

  • Yarn or embroidery thread
  • scissors

step-by-step instructions to make a tassel:

1. Wrap your yarn about 20-30 times(more=thicker, less=thinner) around your fingers (more fingers=longer) tassel, less=shorter tassel, this is personal preference, test it out and see what you like better. I used a thin yarn size 1 or fingering depending on the yarn brand. 

2. Cut a piece of yarn about 5-6″ long, put it through the center of the yarn loop you created, then place it through the loop on top of the bookmark and tie a knot at the top. Bring one side of the knot you created to the top and tie a double knot.

3. Cut a 10-12″ piece of yarn to create the top, wrap the yarn around 5-10 times and create a knot at the end, leaving the ends long enough to go into the tassel.

4. Using sharp scissors cut the bottom of all of the loops, and trim to your liking.
