If you are anything like me, when you see tassels on ANYTHING you have the urge to buy. However, sometime tassel jewelry is ridiculously expensive, so I am going to show you how to make a tassel, and how you can add it to pretty much anything for a fraction of the price!
So first things first, you need supplies. I picked up all of these things at JoAnne Fabric for $15 dollars. Everything was on sale, but I will link some similar just as inexpensive options below. All you need for the jewelry I made is string, jump rings, elastic, and beads of your choice!

Step 1: Wrap the string around your hand several times, make sure the thickness doesn’t exceed the width of your jump ring, or else it won’t slide through! Once you have a good size bundle, slide it off your hand
Step 2: Place the bundle you created into the jump ring
Step 3: Fold the bundle over
Step 4: Tie a piece of string around as tightly as possible, I triple knotted mine!
Once you have the string tied tightly, cut the bottom loops as evenly as possible and whaaaabam, you’ve got a tassle! It is SO easy and the possibilities are endless. I ended up making a few bracelets with random beads I purchased and a tassel necklace that I am absolutely OBSESSED with. Figure out a bead pattern you like, and go for it! It was so fun and simple, and I spent less than $20!
