DIY Hygge Inspired Blanket Tassels – Cozy Christmas Blanket
Firstly, wrap your yarn around the square cardboard cut out, the more yarn that is wrapped around the cardboard the chunkier the tassel will be, our tassels are wrapped about 26 times. Once you it is thick enough, cut the yarn away from the roll.
Secondly, pull a 6” piece of loose yarn through the wrapped yarn, bring this up to the top of the cardboard (see picture for guidance) and tie a loose knot.
Once the knot is tied, cut the bottom of the wrapped yarn with the scissors and tighten the top knot.
Next, take another 6” piece of yarn and tie it about inch below the top knot, this will create a nice chunky bulb. You can stop here…but if you want a chunkier look, go ahead and add another bulb!!
Once the tassels are complete, attach the tassels to the blanket using the string at the top and tie it onto the blanket, through one of the knitted holes. If your blanket is fabric, use a needle and thread to attach them. Be sure to measure how many tassels you have with the width of your blanket to space them out evenly.
