It is that time of year again – MOTHER’S DAY! This year TASSELS are SO in style. You can find them everywhere – hanging off of keychains, bags, necklaces. So how about making and giving MOM her own colorful tassel on the rapidly approaching big day? I looked around for an easy way to make tassels and then I realized that I already had one. The ALEX BRANDS Pom-tassel kit which Donatella used before Easter to make colorful pompom eggs which made things so much easier! Once again a FunLab 👍 on this ALEX BRANDs kit!
Lets get started:
Step 1: Prepare your keychain by looping on a double piece of twine.
Step 2: Using the provided beading needle add buttons and beads to your keychain. Set aside.
Step 3: Decide what colors of yarn you want to use. I decided to go for two colors in my tassel. Thread through the key.
Step 4: Wrap around the two upright pieces on the machine. I tied it in place to make it easier.
Step 5: Start spinning! Keep going until the tassel has reached the desired fullness.
Step 6: Tie keychain twine onto one end of the tassel.
Step 7: Remove from the machine. Your tassel should look like this:
Step 8: Trim the loops on the end opposite of the keychain.
