    Wrap yarn around the pompom winder. The more you wrap, the fuller your tassel will be.

    Tip

    If you don’t have a pompom winder, cut a piece of cardboard into a small rectangle. The length of your cardboard will be about the same as the length of your tassel so use that to determine sizing.

  • Step 3

    Slide the yarn bundle off the winder. Then cut the yarn at one end.

    Cut another strand of yarn and wrap it around the yarn bundle close to the top. Keep wrapping until you achieve your desired tassel look. Tie the strand in a double knot.
