DIY TASSELS - under $5

I love the look of tassels and always have ideas for them around the house, but they're so darn expensive!  Just two tassels run you upwards of $3.00 at most craft stores, which is way too much for me.  So, I decided to make my own!  These were only about 12 cents each and made from embroidery floss.

First, pull out two lengths of string from the skein.

Put one end of the string through one end of the skein of embroidery floss.

Tie the string in a tight double knot.

Do the same to the other end.

Fold the skein in half and cut through it in the middle.

Tie a string in a tight double knot just below the top knot.  Trim the ends.

And voila!  You have the tassels!
