How to Make It

  1. Mark an 18-inch-long line 1 1/8 inch from the top long edge of each felt strip.
  2. Make 1/2-inch cuts, starting at the bottom edge and stopping at the marked line.
  3. Stack the two felt strips, matching all the edges.
  4. Fold the hanging ribbon in half; glue the cut ends in one corner of the felt, 1/2 inch down from the top edge.
  5. Begin gluing and tightly rolling the tassel top, stopping 1/2 inch from the end.
  6. Wrap the top with trim, tucking and gluing the ends in place.
  7. Slip a bead over the top of the ribbon hanging loop.
