Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We have a super easy and adorable tutorial for you today. After making our Martenitsa tassels we got on a kick and tried out tassel magnets. I’m happy to say they were a great success. You can use them for your fridge, or to give as a hostess gift for a party. Change them up by making them with different colored yarn too. We chose to make ours out of baker’s twine since they were going to be used in Jaime’s kitchen.
Find out how to make DIY Tassel Magnets after the jump…
1/4 inch disk magnets
2×4 inch piece of card stock
Fold your piece of card stock in half and begin wrapping your baker’s twine around.
Continue wrapping it around about 20 times.
Thread a small piece of baker’s twine through the bundle at the opening of the fold.
Tie it in a knot to secure it.
Remove the card stock.
Wrap a piece of baker’s twine about a 1/2 inch down from the top and secure with a knot.
Cut the bottom to turn it into a tassel.
Hot glue a magnet onto the back. Let it dry and then it’s ready to use.
Cute! Tassels are so popular right now!
What a great parent/child craft!
Hello Colleen. I just made one of your girls’ Fast Summer Muumuus from your post last May, and it is super cute. I love that pattern. Thank you so much for it 🙂
