Here’s a fun and easy tutorial for a DIY Tassel Necklace that just takes minutes to make.
Are you loving all of the Tassel Necklaces like I am? I love anything with pom poms and tassels and these are just too cute to resist. However, some of these necklaces come with a hefty price tag. This necklace is easy and simple to make and the best part is…it won’t break the bank.
I’ve also included my little secret to stringing on the beads that have those tiny little holes in them so you can use in them in a variety of necklaces.
- 2 Strands of Antiqued Round Bone Beads
- 30 beads of the Amazonite Rounds Beads 6mm
- DMC floss in coordinating color
- Flexible Beading Needle
- Jump Ring 3mm (Optional)
- Brass Charm (Optional)
- Needle Nose Pliers
Step 1 : The DIY Tassel Necklace is roughly 32″ in length not including the tassel. When the tassel is added, the additional length is just perfect and will hit at the right spot. Begin by cutting a piece of DMC floss that is 40 to 42″ in length. It’s nice to have too much DMC floss instead of too little with stringing the beads because you will need to tie this necklace off and don’t want the DMC floss to be too short.
Step 2: String the DMC floss with the flexible beading wire. This will allow you to be able to string the beautiful amazonite beads onto the DMC floss or any other type of gemstone you may want to use.
Step 3: String several of the amazonite beads followed by the bone beads. You will end with the amazonite beads.
Step 4: Add the tassel. Tie the end of the DMC floss a couple of times. I also use Super Glue to adhere the ends to make sure the necklace will not come apart.
Step 5: I wanted to add a little charm to the tassel to fancy it up a bit. This is completely optional. To add the charm, open oup the 3mm jump ring and slide through the top of the tassel. Slip the charm on and close the jump ring using needle nose pliers.
There you have it! A fun and simple DIY Tassel Necklace that you can create in minutes. You can even watch t.v. while your making it. So, have fun creating and personalizing your own DIY Tassel Necklace to your color choice.
