Supplies needed for DIY Tassel Throw:
How to Make a DIY Tassel Throw:
1.) Make tassels.
For some reason, making a DIY tassel was one of those DIY projects I was always scared to tackle. Like pom poms. Same deal. Don’t know why, I just had some sort of mental DIY block. My daughter is the one who snapped me out of it. She is super crafty, and we watched one or two YouTube videos on the how to, and that was it. We were making DIY tassels in minutes. Seriously. It’s uber easy!
The video above details the process. It’s one of those things that’s easier to show than to write about. So check that out if you don’t know how to make them.
2. Tie the tassels onto the blanket.
Use a tape measure to determine the spacing you want between your tassels. Ours ended up being about 12″ apart so that they were spaced uniformly.
Once you’ve determined your spacing, you simply grab a tassel, and tie it onto the edge of your throw. I’m not a boy scout, so I don’t know a lot of fancy knots. We used a simple square knot. And doubled it. Then we just trimmed off the extra yarn.
Yes, that’s seriously all. We finished this DIY tassel throw blanket project in about 45 minutes, ALL IN. Meaning, I’m including making the tassels and all.
