I was so inspired this week by @ Curly Crafty Mom. So I had to make my own version of a tassle necklace… And I’m in love !!
It was so fun and so easy I will probably make tons and different kinds.
Step #1: Tape a 5 inch piece of thread to the top of cardboard, plastic etc… You can use anything that will allow you to hold the thread.
Step #2: Wrap the thread around the plastic 24 times vertically.
Step #3: Take the thread you taped to the top and tie a very tight double knot.
Step #4: Cut the bottom of the thread where its wrapped to make the tassle.
Step #5: Take a small peice of thread and tie a knot a 1/2 inch from the top of the tassle.
Then take a little jump ring and put at the top of tassle I opened up my ring with my fingers. And then simply put on a necklace.
Few tips that helped me:
I put fabric glue on all the knots I tied just to make sure they stay put.
I used washi tape to tape my string to top just cause it’s so easy to remove.
The sharper the scissors the better.
I used green tones and brown tones for fall season. But there is so many options when choosing colors !! Endless & Exciting.
There is something exciting about making and loving a piece of jewelry that you love and will actually put to use.
What do y’all think ?? Now it’s your trun to try.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog even if it’s for two seconds it means a lot !!
