This cross stitch tutorial will show you how to make an embroidery thread tassel.
1.5″ wide Ruler or piece of cardboard
Step 1- Wrap embroidery thread around a ruler or piece of card (approx. 1.5” wide) about 20 times. Cut the end of the thread.
(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.
Step 3- Pull the 2 tails through the loop, and tighten.
Step 4- Slide the loops off of the ruler or card.
Step 6- Cut another piece of white thread (14” long). Make one end of thread into a loop shape, then lay loop on tassel. Wrap the other end tightly around tassel several times. Pass end of thread through loop and gently close loop, making a knot.
Step 7- Trim tassel ends evenly.
Step 8- Your tassel is ready! Thread top threads onto a needle, and attach to your project.
