How to Make Yarn Tassels – Steps

Step 1

Cut a 6″ long piece of cardboard. I used a cereal box for mine. Hold the end of the yarn against the cardboard and wrap it around the cardboard 30 times. Don’t pull the yarn too tight. It will bend the cardboard.

Step 2

Cut the yarn off. Double-knot tie the yarn together at the top end of the cardboard. Remove all of the yarn from the cardboard. Lay it on a flat surface, with the tied part at the top.

Step 3

Make another double-knot tie about 1 – 1 1/2″ down from the top. Cut about 3′ of embroidery floss. Tie it off at the same spot where you made the last double knot.

Step 4

Wrap the embroidery floss around this spot. Keep it about 1/2″ wide and tightly wound together. When you have about 8″ of floss left, thread it onto the large needle. Slide the charm onto the floss. Hold the charm tightly in place, while tying the floss off on the other side of the tassel.

That’s how to make yarn tassels. Now, pat yourself on the back. You’ve done it!

I used these tassels as Christmas Garland a few years ago.

How to Make Yarn Tassels Garland: I braided 3 long pieces of jute together. Then added jute tassels and 1″ wooden balls to each end. 6 Yarn tassels and more wooden balls were spread out along the braided jute. You can copy my look or change up the patterns, beads, colors, number of tassels…anything goes. Have fun with it! πŸ™‚
