This dip dye tassel wall hanging is a fun touch to add to any home. You can easily customize it with whatever color dye you like best. I went with a dark blue because, to be honest, we already had a bucket of it mixed up. But, also, to be honest, I ran out to Michael’s right after I made this one and bought 6 other colors of dye to make more… Who wants to come over and have a dip dye tassel wall hanging making party???

How to make a dip dye tassel wall hanging:
1. Start by making all your tassels. To do this grab your yarn and wrap it around a book or piece of cardboard (depending on how long you want the tassel to be). Wrap the yarn around 5-10 times depending on how thick you want your tassel to be.
2. Once you are done wrapping the yarn you can take it off of the book. Grab another, smaller piece of yarn to tie the top of the tassel. Make sure to tie it off with enough room for it to fit onto your wooden dowel.
3. Once your tassel is tied off at the top you can cut the bottom in half so that there are no more loops.
4. Continue to make tassels in different sizes. You can do this by using a different book/cardboard length or by cutting the tassels down to a different size once you are done making them.
5. After all of your tassels are made go ahead and thread them onto your wooden dowel, this makes it easier for them to be dyed.
6. Set up your bucket with your dye mixture. Get the end of your tassels wet with plain water and then put the wet end into the dye mixture. Rest the wooden dowel on top of the bucket and let the tassels sit in the dye for about an hour (note: longer soaking time will create a darker color).
7. Take your tassels out of the bucket and squeeze out any excess dye (I recommend wearing gloves for this). Wash your tassels under running water until no more dye comes out. Let dry.
8. To hang your wall hanging you can tie a piece of yarn to both sides of the wooden dowel.
