2. With the first 10 longer tassels, tie a knot 18″ up from the bottom of your tassel. Do the same on the shorter 10 tassels, but about 11.5″ from the bottom of the tassel.
3. Remove the inner ring of your embroidery hoop and make a template with 5 marks in a star shape. Mark them on the inside of the ring, then rotate and mark them again so you have 10 evenly spaced markings.
4. Loop the tassel around the hoop and through the two strands as shown.
5. Make sure the string is on your marking and tie a knot to secure it,
6. Cut the excess off after the knot.
7. Continue until you have 10 evenly spaced tassels
8. Repeat steps 4-6 with the shorter 10 tassels. But place them between the longer tassels.
9. Cut two peices of twine, about 2′ long, and twist them together in the center, as shown.
