Christmas how to #1
You will need
wool in 4-5 different colours, scissors, needle with large eye, twine or string...plus something to wrap the wool around, I used a notebook but anything you can grab that is about 15cm wide.
wind the wool around the book many times...you can choose how small or big your tassels will be by wrapping more or less.
cut one end of the looped wool and keep the strands all together
tie a different colour wool around the centre point and knot.
fold the tassel over so the tied end is at the top, cut 50cm of the other coloured wool and wrap around the top to secure.Tie off and trim. Continue making the same way until you have 10.
arrange in order and taking your twine and needle thread the twine through the top of the tassel leave a gap and repeat until all are threaded on. They should move along the twine so you can arrange the spacing when you are ready to hang.
You can make these from fabric strips, tissue paper..I tried using gold foil for some shiny and bright ones just use the same method...you can also make the tassels longer or shorter depending on your preference and all one colour or many colours. It's a great way to use up yarn scraps and I think these are easy enough for children to try.
