To Make the Tassel

Wrap yarn several times around three fingers. Leave about a foot of yarn on one end. Remove from fingers and pinch together at that end. Use another piece of yarn to wrap pinched strands together. Tie off. Cut open loops on other side. Push long piece of yarn through a hole punched in the top. Tape on the inside to hold in place.
