- Lastly, lower the underside loops of your loops to make the tassels.
- Repeat the method as many occasions and with as many various colours as you need. I made 5 of every coloured tassel and the entire venture took me about an hour.
- Tie small loops at every finish of your impartial string and dangle. You’re executed!
