Easy DIY Tassel Jewelry

I have seen tassel jewelry popping up all over. I think I have 20 different 'tassel' tutorials saved on Pinterest. And in a moment of 'weakness' I actually bought a tassel necklace last year (gasp!! instead of making one!) Because sometimes, it's just waaaaaay easier to B-U-Y than D-I-Y.

But after making these beautiful necklaces at home, I am changing my mind. Making your own tassel jewelry doesn't have to be hard!

Be on trend! Here's how to make your own Tassel Jewelry. 

Supplies Needed: 
-Embroidery Thread (similar here)
-Hemp string for necklace (similar here)
 -Or choose elastic if making a bracelet (similar here)

1. Cut your string- I used a hemp string for making a necklace. If you are making a bracelet, choose elastic. Make it longer than you think you will need- just in case! 

Depending on how thick you want your tassel, you can just slip the string through and make your tassel. 

OR- if you want a 'fatter tassel' like I did, then you need to open the embroidery thread package and double the thread over to make loop that is twice as wide but half as long. Now slip your necklace or bracelet string through the loop. 

2.   Snip off a long piece of the thread, use it wrap around the 'neck' to make a 'head' for the tassel. Tie in a knot to secure.

3. Now snip the bottom and trim to desired length. 

4. Add beads and tie the string to finish! 

Later, I used elastic string to make a bracelet. I used metallic thread to tie around the tassel- I love how it turned out!

Special thanks to my mom (aka At Home with Jemma!!) and girls for making these with me-- they are my favorite to people to craft with :) It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

My 'crafting partners' for this project-- this girls were so happy to craft with Grammy.
