Turn scraps of trims, leftover ribbons, and bits of yarn into a fringy decorator DIY tassel. Tassels are trendy and can be used in so many ways. Make a DIY tassel for a curtain tieback, use one as a keychain, or hang one from a doorknob. Or just tie it on your agenda book!
How To Make An Easy DIY Tassel
Materials & Tools
Scraps of ribbon, trim, and yarn, approx. 50 strands (14″ long)
Seed beads (enough to thread 6”)
Thread to match the seed beads
1. Lay all the trims down together and line up the ends.
2. Fold the trims in half and slide one piece of ribbon through the fold. Pull the ends of the ribbon up around the trims and tie.
3. Tie another piece of ribbon around the folded trims about 1” from the top to create a ball look. Let the ends hang down as part of the tassel.
4. Cut the bottom of tassel and trim to make the ends loosely even.
5. To embellish the top, feed the beads onto a threaded needle until you have enough strung beads to wrap around the tassel three times.
6. Feed the needle all the way through the tassel where it is tied and wrap the beads around the tassel three times. Tack the beaded strand in place by feeding the needle over each wrap and through the tassel.
7. Tie the tassel onto a key ring with a cow-hitch knot.
So easy and so pretty! What would you do with this tassel?
