    Yarn tassels
  1. Cut 20 - 10" strands of the same color yarn.
  2. Gather strands and tie a knot in the middle.
  3. Tie off right beneath knot with an extra piece of yarn.
  4. Trim bottom of tassel so it is even.
  5. Repeat 1-4 with all the colors chosen until there are the desired amount of tassels; about 11 tassels per 2 yds. of twine.
  6. Cut twine to desired length.
  7. String tassels onto twine using 2-3 strands at the top of the knot of each tassel.
  8. Adjust as necessary to make even spacing between tassels.
For tassels, wrap yarn 20 times around a jar or glass with approximately 10" circumference, pull off and cut in half. This will make the process quicker.
