DIY Tassel Necklaces: We said goodbye to summer last week and are now back at school…still in our summer haze though. With school comes back-to-school shopping, and my girls love all the new clothes, shoes and accessories they want to buy. As a kid, one of my favorite things I enjoyed about going back to school was wearing new clothes and planning out my outfits for each day. I always liked to accessorize. My little girls are obsessed with necklaces so keeping them away was difficult. I am planning to get her a personalized name necklace as I know she’ll love it. A cute necklace with do that to any outfit. But for now, we made some long tassel necklaces for them to wear with their new outfits. And now I want to put a tassel on just about everything!
All these craft supplies came from a hobby store (like Michaels or Hobby Lobby). I bought a bead box and the embroidery thread cost about 40 cents for each one so you can make a lot of tassel necklaces for just under $10!
To make the beaded necklace, cut the cord about twice as long as you’d like the length. Take the flexible needle and thread the cord in the hole. We made a knotted necklace, so you can string the bead and then tie a knot then string the bead and then a knot. Keep doing that until you get your desired length. We made the necklaces long enough so we just knotted the necklace off with a square knot. Or to make the necklace quicker, you can just string the beads on the cord, ending with a square knot. To attach the tassel, take another jump ring and secure the tassel on the necklace. Add as many tassels onto one necklace with a jump ring!
Make one for you and add multiple tassels to a simple long gold chain!
