How to make Valentine’s Day Keychains

How to make a tassle

First let’s make a tassel.

Yarn + 2 long strings of yarn + piece of cardboard.

Take your cardboard and roll some yarn around it. Take your first string of yarn, make a knot around the stack of yarn you did.

Now you can take your tassel out of your cardboard; then cut one edge (the opposite of your knot).

Take your second piece of string and roll it at around ½” from your first knot. Refer to pics if necessary.

Add your beads to the keychain

Add your beads to your tassel string, then attached it to your keychain.

Adding your printable to the keychain to make it a Valentine’s Day gift

Cut one heart out of your printable, and with the help of your punch make a hole. Attached your keychain to your heart.
