FREE Tutorial: Three Ways to Make an Easy Tassel

Here are three ways to make an easy tassel.  Tassels have been made and used for centuries from the times of ancient Rome until today as ornaments, embellishments, and decorations.  They were often viewed as symbols of power and prestige.  Today, they mainly just make things like our handbags and curtain holdbacks look better.  I learned a lot about the history of tassels which I'll write about in the future, but today I wanted to show you these simple techniques to make an easy tassel.
