Today Amy from Homey Oh My! Blog is back at it with another amazing DIY! Take it away Amy!
For all that reading you’ll being doing this season cozied up in your favorite seat, make these chunky tassel bookmarks to accessorize and bring a touch of fall to your books!
Step 1: Wrap yarn 50 times around a piece of cardboard that’s about 3.5 inches wide, then cut off the excess yarn.
Step 2: Slide a piece of yarn under all the yarn wrapped around the cardboard, then double knot it at the top.
Step 3: Cut all the yarn on the opposite side and keep all the yarn folded as is.
Step 4: Tightly double knot a piece of yarn near the top to make the head of the tassel.
Step 5: Tightly double knot a piece of yarn underneath the previous piece of yarn.
Step 6: Cut off all excess yarn and scraggly ends.
Your yarn tassel should look like this!
Step 7: Measure and cut out a 4.5×6.5″ piece of cardstock
Step 8: Fold the cardstock in half length-wise
Step 9: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge with a foam brush on the inside of the cardstock, then fold it back and let it dry.
Step 10: Punch a hole at the top of the bookmark.
Step 11: Double knot the tassel through the hole and cut off the excess yarn.
Now you are all set to read as many books as you want this season! Share with us your DIYs by tagging us on Instagram @pbteen and #mypbteendiy!
