Tassel Wall-Hanging By Vickie Howell

Tassel Wall-Hanging

Written By Vickie Howell for Arteza


Tassels are one of the easiest ways to use yarn to create a visually impactful home décor. Our wall-hanging is made with generously sized versions in an array of Springtime shades of Arteza worsted yarn. Make to give your space a pop of color — or even better, make several in different palettes to match every season!

 

MATERIALS

100% Acrylic Yarn, Worsted, Light Colors - Mini Pack

9” wide book or piece of cardboard

Scissors

24” copper pipe

11, Wooden beads 

Large-eye blunt needle

1 1/2 yd rope


HOW-TO


STEP 1: Choose yarn colors

Pick 11 of your favorite shades of yarn


STEP 2: Make 11 Tassels

  • Wrap yarn around book or cardboard, 40 times.
  • Cut a long strand of yarn. Slip strand under the wraps and slide to the top of the “loop” created by wrapping. Tie a firm knot. Leave long strands for hanging.
  • Cut through “loops” at bottom of wraps to free the yarn from the book/board.
  • Using a separate, long strand if yarn and measuring about an 1 1/2” from top, wrap yarn around all strands for about 1/2”. Tie off.
  • Trip to make even.
  • Repeat for remaining tassels

STEP 3: Add Beads

  • Slide a wooden bead over both of hanging strands, is it sits at top of tassel. 
  • Repeat for remaining tassels.


STEP 4: Tie Tassels to Pipe

  • Tie tassels to copper pipe in an arrow formation (stair stepping them dow, 1 by one to center, and then back up.)
  • Trim ties.

STEP 5: Attach Hanging Rope

  • Feed rope through the copper pipe, pulling through until you have about 20” of visible ripe on both ends.
  • Create hanging loop by using an over-hand knot to tie two ends of rope together about 4” down from top, then again about 1” from top.

Hang and enjoy!
