Here’s a very easy DIY tutorial for a Simple Pom Pom Tassel.
Tassels and Pom Poms are the latest in fashion right now. I love both of them and the whole Bohemian look. So, I was inspired to create a Simple Pom Pom Tassel with these beautiful brass breads from Happy Mango Beads. You’ll Love how this project comes together in no time and how easily you can personalize it to match any of your tote bags or purses.
- 6mm Round Brass Beads
- Large Pom Pom Maker
- Two Colors of Acrylic Yarn
- Piece of Cardboard Roughly Three Inches
- Large Needle
- 3 Small Pom Poms
Step 1: These are the Pom Pom Makers that I have found to work the best when making pom poms. They turn out nice and full and are pretty fail proof. You can customize your tassel depending on what size you would like. For my tassel, I used the largest pom pom maker. Follow the instructions using two different colors. When tying off the pom pom, leave at least 6″ of yarn. This will be used for attaching the tassel to your bag.
Step 2: Cut a piece of cardboard roughly 3″. Wrap the yarn around the cardboard numerous times. Make sure it has been wrapped enough so that the tassel will be nice and thick.
Step 3: Slide the yarn off of the cardboard and onto a pencil. Once on the pencil, use a separate piece of string to wrap the tassel several times and tie a knot as shown above. Trim the bottom of the tassel using scissors.
Step 4: Using a needle, thread a piece of yarn up through the top of the needle to thread the beads and pom poms.
Step 5: Keeping the needle on, thread the brass beads and pom poms. After threading all of the beads and pom poms, thread this up through the pom pom and tie it tight ( into the pom pom). Take three strands of the remaining thread and braid it. Braid this thread long enough to make a loop that will be used to loop the tassel onto the bag.
So simple and easy. Enjoy making these fun and Simple Pom Pom Tassels. You’ll want one for all of your tote bags and purses.
