Hello friends! Today I have a super easy and fun project to share.

Do you have 10 minutes to spare? That's all this project will take you to make three pretty paint dipped tassels!

Making tassels can be a lot of fun, but to save me a few dollars on this project, I decided to use some leftover bottles of paint that I had to make white tassels unique and colourful. The yarn was also stashed in away in my supplies, so this project actually cost me zero dollars. Yarn itself, if I want to make two or three different coloured tassels, can cost anywhere from $5 to $10 each. But I don't get enough use out of yarn to go and spend that kind of money. To compare, if you don't have any paint, the dollar store sells it for as little as one dollar each!


  • White yarn

  • Old postcard

  • Fabric scissors

  • Two glass bowls

  • Water (from sink)

  • Craft Smart Acrylic paint in Plum

  • Craft Smart Acrylic paint in Bright Magenta

  • Spoon

  • Paper towel


First you have to make the tassels. I found an old postcard that was just the perfect width. The width becomes the length of the tassels. You can also use a piece of cardboard. Whatever you choose should be sturdier than paper.
