These extra-large tassels take an extra step. Before knotting the head, place a small ball of yarn inside. This will keep the tassel head full and round. Stitch these chunky tassels to the ends of tapestries, throw blankets, or area rugs for an extra-large effect.

To make this cute tassel keychain, loop a ribbon of suede around your hand several times, creating a circle. Remove your hand from the circle, and secure one end of the loop (A) in your hand. Put the other end of the loop (B) through a key ring. Going between the key ring and loop B, thread loop A through to create a girth hitch. Pull tight and clip the ends of loop A to create the tassel.

Nothing ushers guests out the door quite like an empty doorway. Just a small splash of color can keep eyes interested and moving around the room rather than out of it. Use curtain ties with tassel ends as a decorative touch near the entrance.

Switch Tassel

Standard pull-chain lights are easily damaged with their cheap chains. For a stronger and more beautiful fixture, switch out the pull with a decorative line of beads followed by a tassel. Create your own, or purchase decorative elements from a crafts store.
