Creating embroidery floss tassels is the simplest thing!  First, remove the paper label from the middle of the floss, but be sure not to tangle the thread… you will want to keep it looped.

Gently cut about 15″ of thread from your floss.  Using a pencil, loop one end of the floss creating the top of your tassel.

Using your 15″ of thread, tie it off right at the pencil.  Then wrap the excess floss around the remaining thread about five or six times.  Use a little hot glue, secure and then cut off the remaining thread.  Trim the tassel and repeat on the other side.  This technique gives you two tassels per color of floss.

Tassel Easter Basket steps
Once all my tassels were made, I had eight tassels (2 of each color).  I had originally planned on sewing each tassel to the basket handle but ended up using simple hot glue instead.

I left an open area at the top of each basket for my children to easily grasp.  Pinks + oranges for my daughter and blues + greens for my son.
