Helpful Tips:

  1. Choose colours and shades of yarn you like or that match your home decor. Pastel colours look really nice for spring or a baby’s room.
  2. If your cardboard isn’t thick/strong enough you can glue 2 or 3 layers of thin cardboard together to make the wreath form.

What’s the easiest way to make yarn bundles for the tassel wreath?

We found it easiest to wrap the yarn around a piece of cardboard cut to 8 inches (half the length of the strands). You can also wrap the yarn around a book if you have one the right size.

Wrap the yarn around the cardboard however many times for the number of strands you need (ie. 8 wraps for 8 strands). Then cut across the yarn to create a bundle of 16 inch strands.

How do I keep the tassels from drooping?

If your tassels are flopping down when you hang your wreath, try cutting them a bit shorter. The shorter the tassels, the less they’ll droop.

Alternatively, you could also add more yarn into each of your bundles when you make your wreath. The thicker the tassel, the more the wreath will lay flat on the wall.

What size rainbow tassel wreath does this make?

Our rainbow tassel wreath has a diameter of about 14 inches.

Do I have to use cardboard for the tassel wreath form?

If you don’t have cardboard you can also use an embroidery hoop or any other type of wreath form to make this tassel wreath. Try using one made from metal or styrofoam. Just keep in mind that the thicker the wreath form, the longer your yarn bundles will need to be.

What type of yarn is used for a tassel wreath?

We used worsted weight yarn (medium, size 4) to make our rainbow tassel wreath. Thicker chunky yarn would also work nicely to create a full looking wreath.

Can I hang this wreath on an outside door?

We recommend hanging your tassel wreath indoors, since yarn doesn’t hold up well to rainy or snowy weather. If you have a covered porch that’s protected from the elements, the wreath will probably last a season outside, but humidity and moisture will still affect it. We think the wreath looks beautiful hanging on an inside door!
