There are so many different ways to make tassels! Here is a simple, but very effective way to achieve nice thick tassels.
Here I used 2mm 3ply rope. You can go thicker or thinner & change up the colors-so many options!
-I used a book to wrap the cord around (about 25 times)
-Using a separate piece of cord I tied Overhand Knots tightly on one side of the rope
-I then pulled the rope off of the book and cut through the other end of the loop
-Using a separate piece of cord I made a Wrap Knot about 1 inch below the top of the tassel
-Cut the cords to the desired tassel length and un-twist or brush out the rope for a smooth tassel look OR leave as is
-To add the hanging loop, use a separate cord to push through the loop on the top of the tassel and tie 2 Overhand Knots tight to the tassel and 1 Overhand Knot with both cords to create the loop
These are fun to add to wall hangings/weavings/plant hangers/ pillows...simple but cute, right?!
