Check out the instructions below to learn how to make a tassel using a small piece of cardboard.
Begin by cutting a small slit in one end of your cardboard.
Grab your yarn(s) and put the tail(s) in the slit you just cut. Then start wrapping your yarn around your cardboard lengthwise.
When you’ve wrapped as much yarn around the cardboard as you like, cut your yarn and put the other end of your yarn through the same notch you began your tassel with.
Tie the opposite end of your soon-to-be-tassel together with some scrap yarn.
Cut your yarn at the opposite end of your carboard and carefully slide the tassel off the cardboard.
Use another piece of yarn to wrap and tie around your tassel near the uncut end. Trim any ends of yarn that stick out where they shouldn’t, and your tassel is ready!
