Horse hair tassels are beautiful, meaningful and simple to make. They make a wonderful gift and a perfect forget-me-not.
To make a horse hair tassel you’ll need the following things:

  • 30 cm of horse hair.
  • Waxed twine.
  • Leather trim.
  • Leather rope.
  • Strong glue.

And here’s how to do it:

  1. – Fold your horse hair in half and tie some wax thread about 3 cms below the fold.
  2. – Line the inside of a section of leather trim long enough to wrap around the tassel. Wrap it around, making sure the trim covers the wax thread.
  3. Sew the leather trim closed at the end.
  4. Attach a loop of leather rope at the top of the tassel.
  5. Trim the tassel to desired length.
