I love felt crafts. It’s easy to work with and you can do so many things with it. Today I want to share a super easy felt craft, these DIY felt tassel key chains. They would make cute handmade gifts for teachers, friends, or for Mother’s day and Father’s Day coming up. You can make them in any color combination or ever try it with different materials like fabric or leather. You can also use this tutorial to make ornaments as well. Here is what you need:
I have a bag of these keychains. My brother gave them to me after he moved when he cleared out his craft closet. Score!
First, I measured and cut two pieces of felt that are 3”X4”. With a great pair of scissors, you can cut both pieces at the same time.
Take one color and cut a strip off for the strap to attach the tassel to the key chain. Loop the strap through and glue it together.
Fringe the two rectangles of felt as shown. Be sure not to make the strips too thin or the felt will break off easily.
Place the shorter piece on top of the longer piece. Glue the strap on top of the inside layer.
Begin rolling and gluing the felt, creating the tassel. Be sure to roll it as tightly as possible. You can make so many different color combinations.
