How to Make an Embroidery Thread Tassel


Material List:

Embroidery Needle

Embroidery Floss

Small Scissors

1.5" wide Ruler or piece of cardboard  


Step 1

Wrap embroidery thread around a ruler or piece of card (approx. 1.5” wide) about 20 times. Cut the end of the thread.

(Make a larger tassel by using a wider piece of card/ruler and wrapping more thread around it.)


Step 2

Cut a second piece of embroidery thread 14” long. Fold in half. Thread the folded end of the second string under the loops, so that there is a loop on one side and two tails on the other side.


Step 3

Pull the 2 tails through the loop, and tighten.

Step 4  

Slide the loops off of the ruler or card.


Step 6

Cut another piece of white thread (14” long). Make one end of thread into a loop shape, then lay loop on tassel. Wrap the other end tightly around tassel several times. Pass end of thread through loop and gently close loop, making a knot.


Step 7

Trim tassel ends evenly.


Step 8

Your tassel is ready! Thread top threads onto a needle, and attach to your project.
