handmade yarn tassel ghost keyring craft for kids

How cute are these little keyrings? We bought a huge ball of white wool a little while ago and I’ve been trying to figure out something to use it on for a while now. Then, the other day I made some tassels to go on a cushion and my son was instantly obsessed with them. He used them as ghosts to play with alongside his scooby doo toys and that’s how we ended up inspired to make these cute little yarn tassel ghost keyrings. They might look a bit tricky at first but once you have them figured out, it takes less than five minutes to make each keyring. Although, we only use one as a keyring at the moment as the others are tucked safely away inside my son’s favourite mystery machine toy!

Heres what we used

  • White yarn
  • Googly eyes
  • Black gems
  • Bows
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Keychains
  • Glue gun

First you’ll need to take your cardboard box and cut out a rectangular shape. You’ll want the height of your piece to be the same length as you want your tassel to be.

Take your yarn and starting at the bottom, begin wrapping it around the centre of your card. You’ll want to make sure that your yarn is secure but not so tight that it bends your card. Continue doing this until you reach your desired thickness and then cut off the yarn at the bottom – the same side as which you started.

Cut off another length of yarn and fold it in half. Tie the centre point into a loop as you can see above.

Use the two loose ends of your loop to tightly tie it around and double knot at the centre of your wrapped yarn.

Slide your yarn sideways off of your piece of card and then turn it inside out so that your loop is outside and at the top as you can above.

Place your scissors through the inside of your loop and then snip the loops open. I find the best way to get even lengths is to pull the scissors and loops downwards as I snip to ensure I’m at the centre of each loop.

Take another length of yarn. Tie it just below the top of your tassel to make the head of your ghost.

Finish off by decorating your ghost with some eyes, a mouth and any cute little decorations that you want to add! Aren’t they just the cutest?
