DIY Tassel Necklace
These little tassel necklaces have become my obsession. I recently saw one in one of my favorite department stores with a $90.00 price tag. Yikes! That is too much for me -especially when I looked at it and realized how easy it would be for me to make it myself!
I went to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and got my supplies.
- Embroidery thread
- Needle (large eye for embroidery thread)
- Jump Rings
I have made several of these and the trickiest part is making the tassel – and I will show you how to create one. Meanwhile, choose beads, threads and a pattern design. If you don’t feel very creative, look online.
To create the tassel:
1) Determine the size you want for your tassel. My IPhone was the perfect size, so I used it as my guide. It is important to wrap it tight so it looks neat. I wrapped mine multiple times around the phone.
4) Cut the bottom and trim the edges.
6) Create your necklace.
The necklaces have been a big hit! I have had someone stop me every time I wear one.
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has a variety of beads to choose from.
My only suggestion is to purchase good quality beads, like glass and stone.
Your necklace will last longer and look so much nicer. Please share your design with me!
