From decorative garlands to decorative pillows, tassels seem to be hanging everywhere we look. We came across tassels of every size in Morocco and you’ll see them all throughout our catalog. Now, you can make your own tassels!
To get started you’ll need embroidery thread, a 2 x 2 inch piece of cardboard and a pair of scissors. If you’d like to have bigger tassels, the size of your cardboard should be increased.
Wrap your embroidery thread around the cardboard 35-45 times. The more you wrap, the thicker your tassel will be.
Take a 5 inch piece of thread and loop it through the top. Tie a tight knot – This will help you attach your tassel in your final project.
Cut the opposite end’s loop and set cardboard aside.
Take an 8 inch piece of thread and knot it around the top of your tassel. Wrap the top of the tassel with the remaining length of thread on either side, knotting once more when you’ve come to the end.
Trim and enjoy!
