  • 1 Cut, fold & tie cording

  • 2 Add pony beads

    Thread a few pony beads onto the cording and tie using another overhand knot.

  • 3 Wrap yarn

    Wrap the yarn approximately thirty times around the shorter side of cardboard.

  • 4 Tie cords

    Slide one of the cords between the yarn and the board. Tie both ends together securely around the yarn.

    Cut a 12'' piece of yarn.

  • 6 Wrap & secure yarn

    Slide the yarn off the board. Wrap the 12'' piece of yarn around the yarn bundle approximately 1'' from the beads. Secure it with a knot.

  • 7 Cut yarn

    Cut the looped yarn at the end furthest from the beads to create a tassel.
