Yarn Tassel Banner

Hey there! If you saw my weekend re-cap, I showed the yarn tassel banner that I made for my sister’s birthday — it’s fairly quick and easy craft — great for holiday celebrations, birthdays, or even decorating a nursery/playroom! Today, I’ll show how to make your own. I’ve been doing the tissue tassels for a few years now, but, I love the idea of using yarn, mostly because it can be used over and over again without a whole lot of wear and tear, unlike the its tissue counterpart that tears easily and starts looking a little bedraggled quite quickly.
