I created this DIY for my bohemian-inspired Friendsgiving party on Sunday. It would make a great year-round wall hanging, could be done in more festive colors for a more holiday look, or even done on a larger scale for an impactful wedding detail.
- yarn - I used three colors
- branch or dowel - I painted mine gold
- twine, if you don't want to hang it from the string
- books of different sizes
Step 1 - Wrap one of the string colors around one of the books about 20 times.
Step 2: String a loop, about 3" or 4" long, between the wrapped yarn and top of the book.
Step 3: thread the loose end through the loop and tie
Step 4: cut the wrapped yarn at the bottom of the book
Step 5: wrap yarn at the top, about an inch long
Step 6: tie wrap
Step 7: tie a string, through the loop at the top of the tassel. I kept my strings, long, maybe 15", so I could play with the layout.
I made three different sized tassels, one for each color, so I used three slightly different sized books for the templates. I made about 10 of each tassel to create the hanging.
I played around with the layout before tying.
