How to make a rainbow threads tassel 🌈 DIY

If you have some leftover Rainbow Threads this is a perfect little project to use them by making a cute multi-colour tassel! 

These tassels really brighten up a corner of the home. And I love to use them to decorate our new Stitch Wall Banner.

This would also work with less colour threads - just make each loop a bit thicker. And to make the tassel longer, simply use 4 or 5 fingers instead of 3 when making your loops. 

 

Watch our video tutorial to make it yourself!

 

What you need

- Colourful embroidery threads approx 50cm length each colour - we used half of the Rainbow Threads pack

- Scissors - we used our Colourful Embroidery ones (naturally)

Step by step instructions

Take another piece of thread (around 20cm) and wrap around the bundle of loops. Start at least 5mm down from the top loop. Knot the thread to keep the bundle securely fastened.

Trim the ends so they are the same length and neaten up any strays.
