How to make a Tassel

A tassel is a simple ornament that is used as a finishing feature of any fabric decoration. It can be attached to almost any  accessory to give it a better look.

We will see how to make a tassel with just a piece of string and golden thread.

Steps to make a simple Tassel:

Step 1:

Take a piece of silver string around 12 to 15 inches long. Make a loop at the center of the string as shown.

Step 2:

Fold the threads in half along their length.

Step 3:

Place the thread strand between the two legs of the string and clasp it by twisting the string.

Step 4:

Bring the thread strands down and hold them together firmly.

Step 5:

Take a piece of string and twist it around the top part of the thread. Make a few tight twists around the thread.

Step 6:

Join the two ends of the string and twist the ends together.

Step 7:

Cut the bottom of the thread strand such that the end is even.

The tassel is done!
