Instructions:

(Make a larger tassel by using a wider piece of card/ruler and wrapping more thread around it.)

Step 2- Cut a second piece of embroidery thread 14” long. Fold in half. Thread the folded end of the second string under the loops, so that there is a loop on one side and two tails on the other side.
