Tassels aren't only for curtains, shades and lampshades nowadays, we have seen them turn into a fun fashion statement dangling from ears, on the edges of our scarves, and the trendiest pattern of all, hanging from various pieces of jewelry like bracelets and necklaces. Silver tassel bracelets and gold tassel bracelets have been in fashion a lot lately. So much so that tassel bracelet DIY has become very popular. The tassel trend has been going solid for around two years now and it creates the impression that it'll be hanging out for some time, so it's not very late to start following this trend. Recently silver tassel necklace has been topping the fashion charts with the holiday season around the corner. Tassels are so popular now that people have been looking up tassel bracelet DIY options for gifting purposes this season.
If you have been thinking about making these little guys for a while and took a trip to the craft store and started looking and feeling different materials to get inspiration for how to put them together, here is the solution. Tassel bracelet DIY or Tassel necklace DIY is rather simple. You need just some basic raw material to get started. Here is a step by step by guide to make a silver tassel bracelet or silver tassel necklace, as you may like:
What you will need: Heavy card stock, cardboard, or foam board; the board should be double the length of the finished tassel, string and scissors.
- Cut a winding board from heavy card stock, cardboard, or foam board; the board should be double the length of the finished tassel. Wind thread around board in taut loops until you reach desired fullness (tassel will be twice as full as the loop around board).
- Lay a 5-inch piece of thread horizontally on work surface. Slide wound thread off board, and center it on 5-inch thread. Tie 5-inch thread into a tight knot around middle of looped thread.
- Pull ends of 5-inch thread upward and wound threads downward. Cut through looped ends, and adjust into tassel shape.
- Cut a 12-inch length of thread to wrap tassel neck: Fashion one end of thread into a loop shape, then lay loop on tassel. Grasp the other end, and wrap it tightly around tassel and over the top of the loop to secure it. Wrap slowly, working from the top of the neck down, so neck threads lie evenly next to one another. As you wrap, ensure all the threads in the head and skirt are neatly in place. After wrapping neck, pass end of thread through loop and gently close loop, tucking ends into the head of the tassel. Trim tassel ends, a few threads at a time, to even them if necessary. Use the tie-off threads on top of the tassel to attach it to your jewelry.
There you go, you have the tassel ready. Now all you need to do is create as many as you want for your silver tassel bracelet or silver tassel necklace. It is not necessary that you may need more tassels for a necklace. You can create a beautiful silver tassel necklace with just one silver tassel hanging from it or load your bracelet with several tassels. Let your creativity take over!
