How to Make a Tassel
Techniques | 1 min read time
Add the finishing touches to your project with a tassel, or two! They're fun to make, and perfect for using up your yarn scraps.
Start by cutting out a square piece of cardboard. Ours measures 12cm x 12cm.
Top Tip: You can change the size of the finished tassel by cutting a smaller or larger cardboard template.
Wrap your yarn around the cardboard between 22-25 times.
Both the beginning of the yarn tail and the end should be at the bottom of the card.
Now cut the yarn.
Then thread a scrap piece of yarn under your wraps of yarn, and pull it to the top of the cardboard.
Tie a knot to secure the yarn bundle.
Cut the loops of yarn at the bottom and remove the cardboard.
Tie another piece of yarn around the top end of the yarn loops, just below where you tied the bundle together.
To finish your tassel neatly, give it a trim and a shake.
Using your sewing needle, you can now attach the tassel to your project.
