Step 1: Form Tassels

Wrap yarn around a piece of scrap wood or cardboard about 15-20 times. Using a piece of cardboard or wood as a DIY template will ensure your tassels are the same length throughout your piece.

Take a shorter piece of yarn and slip it under the rest. Then pull it up towards the top of the wood piece and tie a knot.

Step 2: Add Gold Detailing

Cut off a small piece of gold wire using wire snips. This golden detail is optional but it does luxe it up a bit.

Loop the wire through where the existing tie is and close the wire into a small circle.

Step 3: Finish Tassels

Wrap an excess piece of yarn around the bundle towards to top to finish the tassel. Then trim the bottom pieces until even.

Tip

Using a skinnier yarn makes the piece look more elegant.

Step 4: String Tassels Together

Place the small dowel horizontally above the large dowel and space them out. Place tassels how you'd like them to drape between the two dowels.
