Tassel

Required tools and supplies:

  • Tweezers
  • Detailing scissors (embroidery snips)
  • Black office binder clip
  • Large-eyed needle
  • Embroidery floss

 
1.  Pull off three long strand of the embroidery floss and set aside. Cut the remaining piece into 3, 2" lengths.

 
2.  Fold the three lengths in half and pinch into the black binder clip. The folded center should be exposed.

 
3. Take one of the long strands and tie together at the center of the fold. It is easier to handle if you thread it with the needle and then do the work.

 
4.  Now take the rest of the threaded strand and tie around the bundle to make a tassel head.

 
5. Take the toothpick and use it to separate and untwist the strands.

 
6.  Snip the bottom ends of the tassel to make a nice clean straight line.
