pom-pom and tassel gift basket

This is the perfect gift for the yarn crafter in your life! Decorate the basket with yarn elements, such as pom-poms or tassels, then it fill with yarn and accessories! 
Step 1

Make two multi-yarn pom-poms with the larger pom-pom maker from the set. Hold all of the yarns together and wrap them at one time. When shaping your pom-poms, be sure to leave the tails long so you can attach to the basket.
TIP: Follow the instructions on the package.

Step 2

Now, make some tassels to hang from the basket as well. To do this:

  • Cut two 9" lengths of yarn and set aside.
  • Wrap yarn from the skein around the palm of your hand several times, until you get the desired fullness of your tassel. Cut yarn from skein.
  • Slide one of the yarn pieces between the loops and your palm. Tie a knot to secure.
  • Carefully slide the loops off your hand.
  • Wrap second 9" yarn piece around the outside of the loops, about ½" from the top knot. Wrap around the tassel a few times and tie a knot in the back. Trim the ends then, if desired, add a dab of glue to secure ends.
  • Cut the bottom loops open and trim to even tassel strands.
Step 3

Tie two tassels and a pom-pom on each side of the basket handles. Tie and tuck the tails under the pom-pom and trim, if needed.

Step 4

Wrap about 2" of yarn around the base of each handle. Use hot glue to secure ends.

Step 5
Fill basket with yarn and yarn accessories.
