Tassels

Hand­made tas­sels are the eas­i­est things to make and I have some awe­some plans for these that I will share with you next week. I’ve seen tas­sels adorn neck­laces and bracelets and fig­ured I might as well jump in on this fash­ion style. I used my favorite spring col­ored embroi­dery floss (DMC 352 coral, 712 off white, 772 green). I cre­ate my tas­sels in small, medi­um and large sizes.

To make the tas­sels all I did was wrap the embroi­dery floss around my fin­gers sev­er­al times until I was hap­py with the thick­ness of the floss. Once I was fin­ished wrap­ping the floss I care­ful­ly slid the floss off my fin­gers. Make sure you keep the cir­cle of floss in place. Now attach a jump ring through the top of the floss cir­cle. Cut a piece of embroi­dery floss long enough to wrap around the top of the tas­sel sev­er­al times as shown in the pho­to. This will secure the jump ring in place and hold the floss togeth­er. Secure the wrapped piece of floss in place with a dou­ble knot. Cut the bot­tom loop of floss then trim the ends if need­ed. That’s it. You now have an adorable hand­made tas­sel.

To cre­ate a small, medi­um or large tas­sel just wrap the floss around two, three or four fin­gers. It can’t be any sim­pler.
