To create the tassels you need only three materialsThese are:

  • Wool not very thick
  • The scissors
  • A piece of cardboard the length you want to make your tassels

Step 1:

We place the end of the wool on the cardboard vertically, we hold firmly with our finger and begin to wind the wool on itself.

Step 2:

We spin the wool until you get the desired thickness. The more turns you have, the thicker the tassel will be.

Step 3:

Cut a piece of wool about 20 centimeters, we go through the upper part taking all the strands. We make a very strong knot.

Step 4:

We cut the wool at the bottom.

Step 5:

We take another piece of wool about 20 centimeters, we make a semi bow as seen in the image and place on the tassel.

Step 6:

With the long end we wind over the tassel, leaving about two centimeters from the beginning. We give a few laps, until we see that it takes a nice shape.

Step 7:

Now we take the remaining rope and we passed it through the loop.

Step 8:

Now we are going to take the shortest end, the one that was on top and we pull it hard. In this way the loop will be closed and the yarn will be fixed without the need to make more knots.

Step 9:

We cut the excess end flushDon't be afraid, it won't fall apart.

Step 10:

To finish the decorative tassel we just have to cut the fringes so that they are all the most even possible. And that's it, we already have a pretty tassel to fill any corner of the home with color.
