Cut a 12-inch length of thread to wrap the tassel neck: Fashion one end of the thread into a loop shape, then lay the loop on the tassel. Grasp the other end, and wrap it tightly around the tassel and over the top of the loop to secure it. Wrap slowly, working from the top of the neck down, so the neck threads lie evenly next to one another. As you wrap, ensure all the threads in the head and skirt are neatly in place. After wrapping the neck, pass the end of the thread through the loop and gently close the loop, tucking the ends into the head of the tassel. Trim tassel ends, a few threads at a time, to even them if necessary. Use the tie-off threads on top of the tassel to attach it to your project.
