If you don't like pom poms, maybe you like tassels!  Here is a video on making a simple tassel:

LOVELY, thank you!  Smiley  This makes it so nice and easy to make a tassel!

I could have used that years ago, when I was first learning how to make tassels.  LOL, let's just say my first efforts were colossal failures, because instead of keeping it simple, I tried to do something odd with the knotted end, that I knew later would have ended up opening, where the whole thing would fall apart.  (I don't remember what I actually did, but figured it out a few months after the fact...of course, when it was too late to do anything about it, as gifts had already been given out.)

I love your idea of using a folded piece of thin cardboard as a form, rather than trying to pull the tying yarn through the yarn itself, where it's easy to get caught on the tassel threads.  Smiley
