Holy Craft!

It’s been gloomy and raining A LOT around here lately. We could spend the time being couch potatoes catching up on on our DVR shows, but no, not us! We’d rather be crafting! What better way to brighten the gray away than by making a colorful tassel garland to hang in a spot that needs a little extra shine. This is really easy and will make any area super spec!

How to Make a Fabric Tassel Garland

You can make the tassels any size you like. We cut our fabric rectangles around 6″X 10″.

Fold your fabric in half so the two shorter sides meet.

Make cuts in your fabric about an inch apart, stopping around 1.5″ before the fold.

Now unfold your fabric and lay it flat.

Begin to roll your fabric up.

Continue until you have a tube with fringe at each end.

As you roll, untangle the fabric fringe, and try to keep your roll as tight as possible.

Pick it up, fold it in half, and pinch the top together so the fringe ends meet and the edge of the fabric is hidden between them.

Use a fabric scrap or string to tightly secure the top of your tassel.

Make as many as you would like to have. Feed a string through each loop at the

top of the tassels and hang them somewhere you can enjoy them.
