Spooky Ghost Tassel Garland

5 Materials
15 Minutes

With Halloween coming up I wanted to get a little festive with my decorations. I grabbed some yarn and some sequins and made a cute ghost tassel yarn in just 15ish mins! I hung mine on my tv stand but it would be cute just about anywhere - fireplace mantel, a doorway, hanging on the wall just about anywhere!

Materials Needed -

  • yarn (white + another color)
  • sequins
  • tack glue
  • scissors
  • card board

white yarn - Walmart $2.98

sequins - Michael's - $1.99

Step One - Cut length you want

This will be the piece you hang the tassels on. I used a different color of yarn for this but you can do whatever color you want!

Step Two - Make Tassels

To make a tassel I use a piece of cardboard cut to the length of the tassels I want. You'll start by wrapping it around the cardboard.

I made sure I made the tassels the same size - I wrapped the yarn around 15 times.

Once you've wrapped it around the size you want your tassel you'll cut the yarn so it's at the bottom where the beginning piece starts.

Next, you'll cut a small piece of yarn a few inches or so long for the top piece.

You'll take that and feed it through one side of the wrapped around yarn and bring it to the top.

Double knot it.

Now, you'll cut the opposite end of where you tied it together and cut

Here's what it'll look like all cut.

Finally cut another piece of yarn to tie and make the top round part of the tassel. I like to make this piece long enough to tie and be able to be the same length of the whole tassel.

Tie that and you're tassel is complete!

I like to straighten out the bottom of the tassel to make sure all the yarn pieces are the same length.

Step Three - Add eyes + a mouth

I picked this pack of black sequins up from Michael's for $1.99. You could also use small pom poms or even cut a small piece of yarn.

I glued those on with track glue I had on hand

Step Four - Tie to long yarn

I cut the excess yarn off after tying it on and that's it! You'll repeat step two - making a tassel for as many tassels as you want and adding the eyes + mouth. I alternated ghosts with just eyes and eyes + a mouth.

I love how cute and simple this little garland is and brings a little more of the Halloween vibes into my living room!
