Tassels! We’re seeing them everywhere. We’re seeing them in jewelry, on clothes, they’re hanging from our handbags, they adorn our booties, they swing from our keychains. We are a nation infatuated. So, it’s only natural that we teach you how to make tassels right?! The great thing about this tutorial is that, when you’ve got the basics down, you can go crazy with your tassel making. Make them in any material you choose from leather thong to embroidery floss, wool yarn to silk ribbon in practically any length or size you want – hooray! Make teeny ones for the tops of your pencils, or over-sized beauties to tie back your drapes. Make a stash to use as pretty gift-toppers or just the one for a special handmade necklace. However you choose to use them, now that you know how to make tassels, there will be no stopping you.
The only thing we love more than sharing our tutorials with you, is when you share your creativity with us. Inspired to make a little tassel jewelry? Planning to re-vamp a tired purse with a few fresh tassels? Share your makes with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DIYdreamingWithLia and we will share our faves. Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to! ~ Lia
