Happy Tuesday everyone! I am happy to be here with you on this February day. It’s cold here. Is it cold where you are? I am staying in to keep warm. But I would love to show you How To Make A Yarn Tassel. I learn how when I was ten years old from my sweet Mom. She patiently taught me. AND, I am so glad she did.
Now I can add yarn tassels to just about anything.
Even my Thrifted Rattan Chair.
Let me take a few minutes and show you How To Make A Yarn Tassel for yourself.
You need 3 things:
A stiff board
(I used a back from a 5×7 frame.)
I wrapped the yarn around the board 40 times. Each time around the board counted as one time.
Using a 5 inch piece of yarn, I tied the yarn strips with a square knot (right over left, left over right)
Next, I flipped the board over and cut the center of the wrapped yarn. It’s okay if it isn’t perfect. You can always “trim” it up later.
Once you remove the card your tassel will look like this. You are almost done.
Gather all of the tassel together, leaving the “tie” separate from the rest of the tassel.
Using another 5 inch piece of yarn, and about 1 1/2 inches down, tie another square knot (right over left, left over right)
TA DA! You have made your own yarn tassel!!
Now you can add them to gifts, hang on pillows or throws, make a tassel banner, use them as curtain ties, hang them on a lamp or vase, etc…
How To Make a Yarn Tassel is easy fun and there are SO many colors and various types of yarn you could choose from. I think you are going to be hooked.
I hope today has been enjoyable, and you have learned something new.
Make it a terrific Tuesday!
