DIY Tassel Room Decor Perfect for Dorms (Bedding, Wall Art, + More)
I love crafting! I think it’s so relaxing and it feels good to create something yourself. Recently I wanted to get some tassel bedding and I ended up finding this post here by The Blondielocks on how to make your own tassel bedding. I decided to try it out and also make a few more decorative tassel pieces for my room!
Below are the steps on how to make the tassels and what sizes I did for different projects. I decided to make a pencil holder, a duvet cover, a picture frame, and a white board, but here are some more fun ideas of things to add tassels to:
•Make up bags
Let’s get crafting…
Here are the different kinds of yarn I used for these projects. I didn’t end up using all of the colors, but I thought they went well together! Just a quick note, I wish I would have done the duvet cover with some thicker yarn so it may be something to think about if you decide to make this project.
What I used:
First cut your cardboard to the size you want. For the duvet cover I did 6″ x 6″ and for the other projects I did 1.5″ x 1.5″.
Wrap the yarn around the cardboard. For the bedding I wrapped around 50 times and for the other projects I wrapped 20 times.
Cut the yarn at the bottom so the yarn is all the same length.
Take more yarn and tie a knot in the middle.
Fold the yarn over at the knot and take two more pieces of yarn and tie them onto the tassel so it bubbles.
Repeat until you have the desired amount of tassels.
For the duvet cover I used my ruler to space out each tassel and sewed them onto the blanket with the same color thread as the yarn. For the rest of the projects I used hot glue to stick them on.
I hope you all enjoyed this fun little DIY post! I love crafting and sharing ideas with you all. Let me know if you want to see more of these.
