How to Make A Tassel
Tassels can make a wonderful addition to a pillow or banner. A tassel can add a casual or formal effect. You might choose silver or gold-toned metallic threads to create a formal look, while cotton or wool would make a more casual statement. Try combining two or more colors from the project in the tassel.
Adding a tassel presents you with almost limitless options. Any thread or yarn can be adapted to the purpose, including cotton, wool, acrylic, metals and novelty threads. Pearl cotton or embroidery floss could tie the tassle very nicely. Be creative with colors. Prehaps make the tassel in one shade, and tie it in another. Also, you may want to make webbing around the ball of the tassel.
The size of the tassel changes the measure varances. For example, a four-inch tassel should have a ball with a one inch diameter. A six-inch tassel may have a two-inch ball. A thinner tassel would have smaller ball, while a thicker one would need a larger ball. Length and thickness of the thread should be in proper proportion to one another.
