  1. Take the yarns and wrap it around the cardboard 50 times. I found that the more you wrap the yarn the thicker the tassel. You can use leftover yarn, it’s a good way to recycle, in addition you are saving money.

2. Tie a knot around the top of the tassels. What I did was take a piece of yard and use that to make a knot.

3. I love this part. Take a sharp scissor and cut the tassels on the bottom.

4. Take another piece of yarn, longer than the length of your tassel and tie off the top of the tassel. Tuck the tassel so it blends with everything else. Repeat it again to create two balls.
