DIY: Tassel Earrings

THH Difficulty Level: images-e1542928244330.png

Here’s an alternate to tassel earrings which will only take you less than 10 minutes to do.

What you’ll need:

– 4 embroidery threads in the same colour and 1 in a contrasting colour (I used 4 orange and 1 fuchsia)

–  a pair of scissors

–  2 earring studs

–  epoxy glue or a heavy duty glue

–  Fabric glue to secure any loose threads

Method:

  1. Get all your items ready. Start by taking two embroidery threads  – join it together by wrapping the contrasting thread around them for about two inches.
  2. Fold the contrasting thread in half and wrap it around the two ends to make it a thicker tassel. This will also form a loop on the top (Image 5). Cut the thread and add some fabric glue to secure the loose thread.
  3. Repeat another to create a pair.
  4. Once that’s done, take a pair of scissors and trim the bottom of the threads to create a tassel. Use your fingers to comb the tassel and ensure it’s cut evenly.
  5. Now we need to add the studs to make them earrings. Take the epoxy glue, add a drop to the back of the stud and press it gently onto the top of the earring. Repeat on the other earring and leave it to dry overnight.
  6. Your earrings should look like this when it’s complete (picture 11)!
