MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES
- String or yarn scraps
- One long necklace chain
- An embroidery needle
- A bead
- A washer
Cut your scrap string to roughly the same length. This length will vary depending on the size you want your tassel to be. (Two inches is a good length for a tiny tassel.) The number of pieces you use will affect how fluffy the tassel is, so play around with what you have to see what you like best by folding the bundle of strings in half and picturing the final product.
Once you’ve figured out how much string you want to use and how long it should be, tie another piece of string in a double knot around the center of the bundle. This will be the portion that attaches to the rest of the necklace.
Fold the strings in half around the knot you just made and tie a new piece of string in another double knot near the top.
Wind the tails of this newly knotted piece around and around to hide your new knot. When you’re getting close to the end, thread these tails, one at a time, into an embroidery needle and pull through the wound pieces so they dangle with the rest of the tassel.
Trim the bottom tails of the tassel to the length you want and fluff up the top portion a little if you need to.
