Sep 22, 2018

Welcome to The Poker Club at West Houston's blog post on how to make a DIY tassel blanket. If you're looking for a creative and enjoyable project to create a cozy addition to your home decor, you've come to the right place. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the steps to make your own tassel blanket, providing you with all the necessary details and tips to achieve a stunning result.

Materials Needed

  • 1 large blanket in your preferred color
  • Colored yarn in various shades (choose colors that complement the blanket)
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard or a tassel maker tool

Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace

Find a comfortable and well-lit space to work on your tassel blanket. Make sure you have enough room to spread out the materials and move freely. It's also a good idea to protect your working surface, such as a table or countertop, with a disposable cloth or newspaper.

Step 2: Choose Your Tassel Colors

Decide on the colors you want to use for your tassels. Opt for hues that complement the blanket's color or create a contrasting effect. This allows your tassel blanket to stand out and add visual interest to your living space.

Step 3: Create Tassels

Start by cutting a piece of cardboard into the desired tassel length. If you're using a tassel maker tool, follow its instructions to achieve consistent tassel sizes.

Next, wrap the yarn around the cardboard or tassel maker tool multiple times until you achieve your desired tassel thickness. The more yarn you wrap, the fuller your tassel will be.

Once you've wrapped the yarn, carefully slide it off the cardboard or tassel maker tool, keeping the loops intact. Take another piece of yarn and tie it around the top part of the loops, securing them tightly together.

With a sharp pair of scissors, cut through the loops at the bottom to create the individual tassel strands. Trim the ends evenly to achieve a neat appearance.

Step 4: Attach Tassels to the Blanket

Lay your blanket flat on the workspace. Determine the placement of your tassels, considering whether you want them evenly spaced or grouped together. To attach each tassel, fold it in half and thread the folded end through the weave of the blanket, creating a small loop.

Bring the remaining loose ends of the tassel through the loop and pull them tightly to secure the tassel to the blanket. Repeat this step for each tassel, spacing them according to your design preference.

Step 5: Trim and Style

Once all the tassels are attached, step back and assess the overall appearance of your DIY tassel blanket. If you notice any unevenness or longer strands, use your scissors to trim them and create a more balanced look.

You can also experiment with different tassel lengths or add additional embellishments, such as wooden beads or embroidery, to further personalize your blanket.

Step 6: Enjoy Your DIY Tassel Blanket

Congratulations! You've completed your DIY tassel blanket. Take a moment to appreciate your craftsmanship and enjoy the cozy comfort it brings to your home. Curl up with a book or invite your friends and family to gather around it for a movie night.

Remember, making a DIY tassel blanket is not only a creative project but also a way to express your personal style. Each tassel you attach represents your dedication and unique touch.


In this guide, we've provided you with step-by-step instructions on how to make a stunning DIY tassel blanket. By following these detailed tips and tricks, you can create a cozy masterpiece that will surely impress your guests and bring warmth to your living space.
