Making Tassels
Supplies Needed


  • Yarn
  • A small amount of cord or yarn with a tight twist to secure the top of the tassel (far left)
  • A snippet of yarn for wrapping around the tassel (second from left)
  • Sharp scissors
  • Tassel Maker

How to do it

  1. Loop yarn around the knob of the tassel maker, then around the length of the tassel maker.
  2. Continue wrapping around the length of the tassel maker until you reach your desired thickness, then loop around the second knob.
  3. Cut yarn.
  4. Tie cord around the center of the wrapped yarn.
  5. Cut along each end of the tassel maker so yarn detaches.
  6. Fold the yarn in half with the tied cord at the top.
  7. Wrap the cut strand of yarn around the top of the tassel and tie to secure (you could use a yarn needle to tuck these ends into the tassel if you like).
  8. Trim the end of the tassel to even it out.

You have a tassel! Use the cord to attach tassel to whatever you like.

Tassels are a great way to use up leftover yarn, and there are so many things you can do with them. Here’s all you need to know to make a tassel!
