DIY Yarn Tassel Garland With How-To Video!

231 Views
I loved making tassels as a kid. But, I forgot all about it until they started making a comeback. So, I just had to try them again. You know what? It’s still super fun! And they’re so pretty, I had to turn them into a DIY Yarn Tassel Garland for my mantel.
A few weeks ago, I made these yarn tassel cuties to decorate my DIY Kids PVC Pipe Tent. To start getting into the Holiday spirit, I decided to give the mantel garland a subtle Christmas theme. I used green and red embroidery floss for the tassels. It’ll look great with my Christmas Decor! But once Christmas is packed away, it’ll still look nice.

I went for a simple design, but you could make a lot more tassels. :)
