How to make Embroidery Floss Tassels:

Creating tassels from embroidery floss is the simplest thing!  First, remove the paper label from the middle of the floss. Gently cut about 15″ of thread from your floss and set aside, but be sure not to tangle the thread. Keep the remainder of the floss still looped if possible.

Using a pencil, loop one end of the floss creating the top of your tassel.

Using the 15″ of thread you previously cut off, make a knot and 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 string of your 15″ thread.  

Trim the tassel to your desired length and repeat on the other side of the loop.  This technique gives you two tassels per color of floss.

Adding Embroidery Floss Tassels to a Basket

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 – so much easier!

And depending on what your exact basket looks like, it might be easier to glue your tassels to the top edge. Take this idea and make it work for your basket!

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