Project Instructions

    To make 2 Tassels from one skein of Embroidery Floss:
    Slide the wrappers of a skein of embroidery floss to the center of the skein.
    Cut 4 pieces of memory thread, each 12 inch long.
    Slip a piece of memory thread through the end loops of the floss skein and tie in double knots.
    Wrap a piece of memory thread twice around the skein just below the floss loops and ties in double knot.
    Cut the skein in the middle to separate the 2 tassels.
    Finish the ends of the memory thread by wrapping around a needle to make a tight coil, wrapping around a chop stick to make a loose coil, or shape as desired.
    Use a dab of glue on memory thread ends to avoid fraying.
