DIY KEY TASSELS & MINI POM POMS
Mini Pom Pom Key Rings
mini pom pom maker
Follow the instructions on the pom pom maker box to create several poms in a range of colors (I tried using cotton string for this, but it didn’t work as well, so definitely stick to yarn). If you’ve never used a pom pom maker, you basically separate the cream-colored parts, wrap your yarn around them and then cut down the middle. Before removing it from the maker, cut a new piece of yarn and use it to tie a knot in the middle of the two halves. Then remove the pom pom from the maker and trim any long bits.
Tassel Key Rings
yarn, string or thin leather strips
piece of cardboard
1. Begin wrapping your yarn around a piece of cardboard. (The width of the cardboard will be the size of your tassel.)
2. Slip a piece of yarn through the top of the tassel and tie it in a loose bow. (You’ll use this piece of yarn to attach the tassel to the key loop source.)
3. Tie the pieces of string to the key loop.
4. Create your tassel by gathering the yarn together (it should be folded in half) and wrapping a piece of yarn around the tassel about an inch from the top. It looks best if you wrap the yarn around a few times before tying it off.
