Step 1: Take the end of the colored yarn of your choosing and wrap it around the piece of cardboard roughly 15 - 20 times. Cut the piece from the rest of your yarn and tuck the end into the wound bit.
Step 2: Cut a small piece of the same colored yarn and in the center of your wound yarn, tie a knot. Next, flip the cardboard over, and in the center of the wound yarn cut the yarn in half. Now you should have the beginnings of a tassel.
Step 3: Use the edges of two bits of yarn from the tassel to tie a small circle at the top of your tassel. This will be the loop you use to thread your necklace!
Step 4: Cut another piece of the same colored yarn and tie a knot around the top ¼ of your tassel. You’ve made your first tassel!
Step 5: Cut a piece of yarn or string to use as your necklace and weave the fabric through the circle at the top of your tassel(s).
Step 6: Using hot glue, secure the tassels in the place you want on the necklace.
Step 7: Hot glue pom poms around the rest of the circle to add to the decorations.
