MAKE A… TASSEL
Stitch our mini stocking then spruce it up with some easy-to-make tassels!
TAKE some stranded cotton in your choice of colour and then cut four lengths of the cotton measuring about 10cm each. Keep the lengths grouped together – there’s no need to separate each strand for this as they will be knotted together before being made into a tassel.
TAKE another length of cotton in the same colour – we’ve used a contrasting colour to show you here – and separate a single strand. Knot this thread around the middle of the thread lengths to hold the lengths together, and this will also be your hanging thread.
FOLD another strand of cotton in half to create a loop at one end. Place the thread around the top of the tassel and pass the tail ends through the loop. Pull the loop taut, and pass the tail ends back and forth through the tassel neck to secure.
ENSURE the thread is secured around the tassel neck, then take the tail ends back through the tassel skirt, and trim. Oversew each tassel to the top of your plastic canvas stocking using the tassel hanging thread to secure.
