I loved making tassels as a kid. But, I forgot all about it until they started making a comeback. So, I just had to try them again. You know what? It’s still super fun! And they’re so pretty, I had to turn them into a DIY Yarn Tassel Garland for my mantel.

A few weeks ago, I made these yarn tassel cuties to decorate my DIY Kids PVC Pipe Tent. To start getting into the Holiday spirit, I decided to give the mantel garland a subtle Christmas theme. I used green and red embroidery floss for the tassels. It’ll look great with my Christmas Decor! But once Christmas is packed away, it’ll still look nice.

Starting a new tassel.

Steps to Make the DIY Yarn Tassel

  1. Cut a 6″ long piece of cardboard. I used a cereal box for mine.
  2. Hold the end of the yarn against the cardboard and wrap it around the cardboard 30 times. Don’t pull the yarn too tight. It will bend the cardboard. Cut the yarn off.
  3. Double-knot tie the yarn together at the top end of the cardboard.
  4. Remove all of the yarn from the cardboard.
  5. Lay it on a flat surface, with the tied part at the top.
  6. Make another double-knot tie about 1 – 1 1/2″ down from the top.
  7. Cut about 3′ of embroidery floss. Tie it off at the same spot where you made the last double knot.
  8. Wrap the embroidery floss around this spot. Keep it about 1/2″ wide and tightly wound together.
  9. When you have about 8″ of floss left, thread it onto the large needle.
  10. Slide the charm onto the floss.
  11. Hold the charm tightly in place, while tying the floss off on the other side of the tassel.
  12. Now, pat yourself on the back. You’ve done it!
  13. I’d love to see what you’ve made. Post a picture to your Facebook or Instagram accounts and tag Abbotts At Home so I can see your new art!

Watch this video to see how I made the DIY Yarn Tassels

To make my DIY Yarn Tassel Garland, I braided 3 long pieces of jute together. Then added jute tassels and 1″ wooden balls to each end. 6 Yarn tassels and more wooden balls were spread out along the braided jute. You can copy my look or change up the patterns, beads, colors, number of tassels…anything goes. Have fun with it! 🙂
