I’m not just a travel fan, I also love DIY projects.
Making your own tassel throw is a fun and easy way to add a personal touch to your home décor. All you need is some yarn, a dowel rod, and a little bit of time. With a few simple steps, you can make a beautiful tassel throw that will add color and texture to any room.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Yarn in your desired color (I used two skeins of chunky yarn)
-A dowel rod or a thick piece of string
First, you’ll need to measure out how long you want your tassel throw to be. I wanted mine to be about four feet long, so I measured out four yards of yarn. Once you have your desired length, cut the yarn in half.
Next, take one of the halves of yarn and tie it around the dowel rod or string about six inches from the end. Make sure the knot is tight so the yarn doesn’t slip off.
Now it’s time to start wrapping the yarn around the dowel rod. I wrapped mine about 50 times, but you can wrap yours more or less depending on how full you want your tassel to be. Once you’ve wrapped the yarn around the dowel rod the desired number of times, cut the yarn off leaving a six-inch tail.
Now it’s time to make the tassel itself. Take the end of the yarn and thread it through the loop you made at the beginning. Then, pull the yarn all the way through so the loop tightens around the wrapped yarn.
To finish the tassel, cut a piece of yarn about 12 inches long. Tie this piece of yarn around the top of the tassel, about an inch from the top of the dowel rod. Then, cut the bottom of the tassel so it’s even.
Now you have a beautiful tassel throw that you can use to add a pop of color and texture to any room in your home.
