Felt Tassel Decoration

I’m all for decorations that can be used more than once.  I made this cute felt tassel garland in colors to match my preschool graduation set, and it’s durable enough that I can put it away with my decorations and pull it out again next year.  This will be adorable on the refreshment table!

It was incredibly easy to make, and super cheap too, so of course I had to share how I did it!

It only took felt, cord, and a hot glue gun.  The amount of felt you need will depend on how long you want your garland to be.  Mine ended up being approximately 3 feet long and I only use one and a half sheets of each color.

  1. Cut your felt into strips, I cut mine a half an inch thick.  Then take one of your strips and cut it into smaller 1 1/2 to 2 inch long pieces.  These will go around the top of the tassel. 
  2. Stack 4 long strips of felt on top of each other and place them underneath the cord.
  3. Fold the entire stack of felt strips in half over the cord.
  4. Place a dot of glue on one of the strips near the top of the tassel, but underneath the cord.  Take one of your smaller pieces of felt and wrap it around the top of the tassel, underneath the cord, attach this with another dot of glue. 
  5. Repeat using all of your felt strips.
