I recently made some quick and easy DIY tassels to go with my Sharpie place cards, and I promised a tutorial. These are super easy and could be used for lots of different things, including holiday decor and gift wrapping.
What you’ll need:
- Twine, yarn, cord, or ribbon (I used baker’s twine)
- Small piece of cardboard
First, wrap your twine around a small piece of cardboard several times until your tassel reaches the desired thickness. I used the cardboard backing from my Sharpie package.
Leave a long strand of excess twine at the top where you’ve begun winding it around the cardboard.
Cut the bottom of your twine free along the edge of your cardboard so that it is no longer doubled. Wrap your long strand of excess twine around the top of your tassel several times and then knot it. This will create a small “loop” at the top.
Trim the bottom of your tassel so that all of your pieces are even.
Take a long strand of twine and thread it through the “loop” at the top of your tassel, then tie it in a knot to secure it. This strand of twine is what you will use to attach your tassel to whatever you want — a gift package, place card, cabinet knob, or you could even use it as an ornament.
Trim any excess threads.
Decorate whatever you choose! You can also trim your tassel as short as you’d like.
And here’s a nifty little pinnable graphic for you.
See, I told you it was easy! These are really simple to make and serve all sorts of fun home decor/holiday/gift-giving purposes. Will you be making your own tassels? What would you use them for?
