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:

•Mirrors

•Dresses

•Bags

•Wall decor

•Make up bags

•Jewelry trays

•Bracelets

•Earrings

•Necklaces

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.

Supplies:

•Yarn

•Cardboard

•Scissors

•Ruler

•Hot glue

•Sewing needle

•Sewing thread

What I used:

•Duvet cover

•Mason Jar

•Picture Frame

•Whiteboard

Step one:

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″.

Step two:

Wrap the yarn around the cardboard. For the bedding I wrapped around 50 times and for the other projects I wrapped 20 times.

Step 3:

Cut the yarn at the bottom so the yarn is all the same length.

Step 4:

Take more yarn and tie a knot in the middle.

Step 5:

Fold the yarn over at the knot and take two more pieces of yarn and tie them onto the tassel so it bubbles.

Step 6:

Repeat until you have the desired amount of tassels.

Step 7:

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.
