A little messy
Gather your materials.
Wrap yarn around the pompom winder. The more you wrap, the fuller your tassel will be.
If you don’t have a pompom winder, cut a piece of cardboard into a small rectangle. The length of your cardboard will be about the same as the length of your tassel so use that to determine sizing.
Slide the yarn bundle off the winder. Then cut the yarn at one end.
Cut a strand of yarn that’s about the length of your forearm.
Lay the cut bundle of yarn on the strand you cut. Align the bundle so it’s centered.
Tie the strand around the bundle of yarn.
Sweep the yarn bundle down so that all the strands are in the same direction.
Cut another strand of yarn and wrap it around the yarn bundle close to the top. Keep wrapping until you achieve your desired tassel look. Tie the strand in a double knot.
Then tuck the ends in and pull through!
Hold the ends of the tassel with your fingers and trim with scissors like you are giving your tassel a haircut!
(Optional) Give your tassel some personality with KiwiCo wiggly eyes!
