Step 4) Get a baseline for how long you want the tassel to be and make a guide.  Copy until you get the thickness of tassel that will fill the cap.

Step 5) String the chain then twist before putting wire through top of cap hole.


Step 6) You can add stones, beads, connectors or create a loop with the sturdy wire.  If your chain is uneven, just remove links as needed to even out the tassel.
