July Fourth Mini Tassel Banner DIY


Hello Everyone,
I can't believe that June is almost over! It seems like this month has went by so fast. 

With June coming to end, that means fourth of July is right around the corner. Since there going to be a lot of decorating, I thought it would be fun to come up with a simple banner that anyone could make. This mini tassel banner would look cute at a barbecue or just for decoration in your bedroom. 

Now in this DIY, you are going to be making tassels. In the tutorial I show you the way I make tassels but if you have a tassel making method that you like better, by all means substitute it in ( if you do, start the project at step 6). 

Lets Get Crafty! 


 Supplies
Blue Yarn
Red Yarn
Beading Cord
Scissors
Small Piece Of Cardboard 
Beads (optional)


Step 1: Take your yarn and wrap it around your small piece of cardboard 12 times. When your done wrapping cut off the end. 


Step 2: Cut another small piece of yarn and tie it around the middle of the yarn on the cardboard.

Step 3: Flip your piece of cardboard over and cut down the middle of your yarn (picture 1). After you take your yarn off the cardboard, you should have something like picture 2. 


Step 4: Now fold your yarn together, cut another small piece of yarn and tie it around your folded yarn. 


Step 5: With your scissors trim up any long pieces. Now you should have a tassel! 


Step 6: Repeat steps 1 through 5 until you have as many tassel as you want. I ended up making 30 for this project. 


Step 7: When your done making tassels, start feeding them onto your bead cord.When all your tassels are on the cord tie off the ends.

Now, you can tie off the ends anyway you want. I added beads to both ends of my tassel banner, then just tied a knot. This is optional but I think it really holds the tassels on the cord much better then just tying a normal knot (but its all up to you). 

When your done with step 7, your ready to hang your banner!




Also (in case your wondering) I attached my tassel banner to wall with some tape.
