How to make a Tassel Garland


About a month back I found a bag of tassel trim at the Flea Market and I thought it could be useful down the road, so I bought it.  I have noticed and loved the creamy white pom-pom garlands that are popular and I thought I could make a similar one from the tassel trim.  
I pulled out the trim and some twine I had and got to work.  


After pulling out the trim, I cut each tassel off with my sewing scissors. 


The next step was to pull the yarn string out from the top of the tassel. 



After removing the yarn string I was left with a very cute tassel and I did this for 20 tassels.  



I pulled out my glue gun and placed a big drop of glue on the top of the tassel and then pressed my twine to the glue. 


I glued on all 20 tassels and had a lovely garland! 







One of my friends and a local shop owner saw my garland on IG and came over and we made a whole bunch for her shop!
