Total time:

Step 1

Separate the inner and outer parts of both embroidery hoops. Put aside the outer parts of the hoops as they won’t be used. Paint both inner hoop parts with copper paint and leave to dry.

Step 2

Next, cut lengths of yarn for the tassels. Cut 75 80cm (311⁄2″) lengths from Yarn A, and cut 120 60cm (235/8″) lengths from Yarn B.

Step 3

To make the tassels for the larger hoop, gather five lengths of Yarn A together and fold in half to make a loop. Pass the loop through the embroidery hoop from back to front, and pull the ends of the yarn through the loop, as shown. Repeat another 14 times with the remaining lengths of Yarn A.

Step 4

To make the tassels for the smaller hoop, gather 20 lengths of Yarn B together and attach using the same method as per Step 3, stopping once you have six tassels in total on the hoop.

Step 5

Add wooden beads to the smaller hoop by taking three strands from the centre of the first tassel and three strands from the next tassel, and threading on a bead. Push the bead to the top, then repeat for the remaining tassels.

Step 6

Join the two hoops together at the top by wrapping a length of cream yarn around both hoops and securing it with a knot. Thread on wooden beads, using the image as a guide, tie a knot and make a hanging loop. Trim the Yarn B tassels diagonally, as shown, to finish.
