Want something to spice up your gift bags or luggage? This cute little trick is just for you. It takes about five minutes and just three basic things.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Assorted yarn
WHAT TO DO
Step 1: Wrap yarn around your hand a few times (or an object like a small book). You can use one colour, or a few. For one colour you'd want to wrap it around more times, whereas if you're using a few different pieces of yarn, only wrap each of them around 3-4 times.
Step 2: Carefully remove from hand/object and place on flat surface.
Step 3: Cut off some string at least six inches long and wrap it around the centre of your yarn. Tie it in a double knot.
Step 4: Fold all of the string over onto one side of the knot and flatten it.
Step 5: Cut off another piece of string a little bit shorter than the last and tie it about 1/3 from the top of your tassle. Cut off any excess string.
Step 6: While you're at it, even out the bottom strings with your scissors, too.
Step 7: Tie the two strings at the top of your tassle together to form a loop. *Though if you're planning to tie it around something, do that.*
Ta da! A beautiful tassle you can use however you wish.
