It’s in spite of everything fall! There’s one thing about fall that makes me wish to put a blanket in each room and on each chair. I like the massive tassel blankets I’ve been seeing all over the place, however I haven’t been loving how pricey they’re. So, I took my favourite blanket and added some DIY tassels! For $five and in 30 mins…I’ve my own adorable DIY massive tassel blanket (for different DIY house initiatives, observe me @angelarosehome and at angelarosehome.com)! I like the additional pop of character it provides my house, and I like how you’ll be able to customise it to any colour and on any blanket. Right here’s how you’ll be able to make one too!
Right here’s what you’ll want in your DIY massive tassel blanket:
- Cardboard sq. (mine is round 7 inches x 7 inches)
- A needle to tie your tassels onto your blanket
Step 1: Reduce some cardboard right into a sq. about 7 inches through 7 inches. If you need a bigger or smaller tassel, you’ll be able to alter the scale of this!
Step 2: Get started wrapping your yarn round your cardboard. I wrapped it round about 100 occasions, however you’ll be able to do roughly relying on how thick you need your tassel.
Step three: If you’ve wrapped across the yarn, lower a work of yarn (round 18 inches) and put yarn string beneath your wrapped yarn just like the under image.
Tie it in a unfastened knot on the most sensible of your cardboard. (You are going to tighten the knot after your next step.)
Step four: Reduce the wrapped yarn on the backside of the card. Reduce in a directly line (you’ll be able to trim later).
Now you’ll be able to tie your knot on the most sensible tight!
Step five: Reduce a work of yarn (about 12 inches) and tie it tightly across the center.
Step 6: Trim your yarn in your desired duration!
Ultimate Step: Connect tassels in your blanket through placing yarn via a big needle and tying it in your blanket. I spaced my tassels round each 6 inches, however it’s utterly non-public choice. So adorable proper? Now pass give your favourite blanket just a little extra character through turning it right into a DIY massive tassel blanket!
