DIY Ghost Tassel Garland

DIY Ghost Tassel Garland The Neon Tea Party

Every time I make white tassels I always think to myself how much they look like little ghosts, so it’s only fitting come Halloween to make a white tassel ghost garland to decorate your home or Halloween party! This simple idea is so cute and can also be adapted to create little ghost charms to hang around your home or in trees outside to greet trick-or-treaters. Enjoy this fun and festive DIY, and have a very Happy Halloween!

YOU’LL NEED:

DIY Ghost Tassel Garland The Neon Tea Party

Secure exterior and interior tails of white yarn in a notch on the Loome tool. Wrap yarn around Loome 50 revolutions. Secure yarn in the same notch as the beginning tail and cut yarn close to the Loome.

Take a new piece of yarn and push it through the space in the center of your yarn. Bring the yarn to the top surface of your Loome, opposite the side with the cut tails.

Tie a single knot (like the first step of tying your shoes) then gently remove yarn from Loome. Tighten knot and secure with a second knot. Trim both strands of tied yarn to be even.

Cut open all of the bottom loops of your tassel. Open up your tassel and rotate the top strings 180 degree so that the knot is now on the underside of your tassel.

Wrap a new piece of yarn slightly below the top of your tassel 3-4 times. Pull on the yarn as you go to compress and create the tassel’s head. Secure wraps with a double knot and let the excess yarn hang down with the rest of your tassel.

Comb tassel to make it nice and neat, then trim tassel so that the bottom is even.

Use your Sharpie to make little eyes and a mouth on each tassel. Press tip of the marker into the tassel so that the ink runs into the yarn and makes the details darker. Have fun and create different faces for each ghost!

Last, thread a strand of worsted weight yarn onto your yarn needle and string the heads of your ghosts onto the yarn to create a garland. Hang it anywhere and enjoy this festive decoration!

  • Longgg before pom poms, there was jewelry making. Fun fact: Making beaded and string jewelry is my OG craft! I cannot recall a time in my life when I didn’t periodically bust out my bead stash and have at it. 😜⠀
⠀
And speaking of bead stash, my jewelry supplies have followed me from move-to-move since childhood, and many of the beads and string I acquired in elementary and middle school! 👧🏻⠀
⠀
I’ve also inherited my mom’s own bead stash (she was a jewelry designer!), which consists of a sophisticated array of semi-precious that I rarely touch since they’re so pretty and special. ✨⠀
⠀
All this to say, jewelry making has always been in the pipeline for TNTP and I’m SO excited to slowly begin building out educational content and opportunities for you guys to become jewelry makers, too. 💕⠀
⠀
I’d love to know - what was YOUR first craft love?? Is there a craft you feel connected to more than any others?? Share below!! ✂️⠀
