How to make a graduation tassel two different ways (Part one)

Here I will show you how to make a graduation tassel two different ways. This will be a Part 1 and Part 2 series.  You can use these tassels for graduation center pieces, party favors and much more.
Lets get started.

DMC Floss (color of your choice)

Step One:
Get your DMC floss. You can take off the paper wrapped around the DMC floss (optional) or leave the paper on.

Cut off about 10-12 inches

 Cut DMC floss in half.

 Step Two:
Get one half of the DMC floss and find the center.

Cut your 10-12inch string in half and place it through the middle.

Tie a knot to secure the middle. Once the middle is secured tie a knot where the string adjoins towards the top to create a loop.

Step Three:
Take the other half of the string and start wrapping it around the tassel just below the knot. You can wrap it around 4 to 5 times. Tie a knot to secure the ends.


You can trim off the excess string or let it blend in with the tassel.  You can trim the bottom of the tassel if it's uneven.

And your tassel is complete.

Stay tuned for next week for part two.
Have a Craftastic Day!
