What you need

  • Cotton yarn
  • Fabric dyes
  • Wood branch
  • Gold garland
  • Ceiling hooks
  • Scissors
  • Books or magazines in small to medium sizes

Let's Get Started

Step 1

Begin by wrapping the yarn around the short side of the book. Wrap until you reach a desired amount. For thicker yarn, wrap it around 20 times. For thinner yarn, wrap it around 30 times.

Step 2

Take the yarn out and tie a small piece of yarn through the top. This yarn will be used to hang the tassel onto the chandelier so make sure the yarn is long enough for you to adjust the height later on.

Step 3

Hold a small of yarn at the top and tie another piece of yarn tightly to create a loop.

Step 4

Center the yarn piece. At the bottom, cut straight down the center. 

Make 12-15 tassels.

Step 5

Two tone dip-dye (optional). In cups, fill the lighter color dye higher and fill the darker color dye lower.

Step 6

Dip the tassel in the lighter cup about 1-2 inches and let the dye soak up, it will run up a little higher. Let it set for a few minutes. Then dip the tassel in the darker cup in about 1/2 inch. Hang and let dry. To speed up the drying process, try using a blow-dryer in low heat mode.

Step 7

Once all the tassels are dried and ready, find a desired height to hang the wood branch. Then tie strings onto the wood branch and hang with ceiling hooks. Hang the tassels and gold garland as your heart desires!
