- Felt (one sheet will give you two tassels)
- Gold tassel end cap
- Industrial Strength Adhesive
- Heat n Bond Lite Or Therm O Web Deco Foil with Hot Melt Adhesive
- Deco Foil – Watercolor Transfer Sheets
Begin by cutting your felt, Heat n’ Bond or Hot Melt, and the Deco Foil to the length you want your tassel by about 6″. Next iron the hot melt to the felt glue side down. Let cool and then remove the paper backing to expose the glue.
Once the paper backing is removed, lay the foil over the glue side of the felt, cover with a pressing cloth or scrap piece of paper and iron for a few seconds to adhere the foil to the felt. Let cool and then peel back the plastic.
Ta-da! Perfect metallic gradient felt for all your crafting needs! Now to make the tassel repeat the process on the other side to create double sided metallic felt and then fringe cut the felt leaving about 1/2″ at the top uncut.
Roll the felt and glue the top into the tassel cap.
Let the glue dry overnight and your tassel is ready to add to your bag, wallet, or keys!
If you clicked through the link for the deco foil above, you will see that there are all types of metallic foil options available from more watercolor looks to solid colors. So, order a few and make up a ton of metallic tassels or just use the metallic felt for your other crafting needs!
