Go a little bohemian with this DIY Tassel necklace, combining beads on a leather lace make it interesting and beautiful.
My inspiration to make this DIY Tassel Necklace comes from the bohemian inspired clothes and accessories for spring and summer. (Oh and these two cute tassel necklaces too!) I just love a good tassel!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
- Leather lace
- End cap
- 2 jump rings
- Needle and thread
Using your needle and thread start stringing your beads.
You will want to make 4 or 5 strings of beads, depending on your beads. I used 65 beads for each string and I made 5 strings. Each string is about 8 inches long.
I recommend tying a knot around the first bead and stacking the next few beads on top of your end thread. You can see this in the photos below, it will help to hide your end.
When you have added all the beads you want to your string, loop around the last bead and tie a knot.
The loop around your bead and run your thread through your beads to hide your end.
Do this for all 5 of your strings of beads.
Open one of your jump rings and place it around all 5 of your strings of beads, in the center.
Be sure to close it tightly, even overlap it if necessary to keep the strings from slipping out.
Using your needle and thread, sew this jump ring (with the strings of beads) up through the hole in the top of your end cap to your second jump ring on the outside top of your end cap.
Be sure to make this very tight and secure, sew around several times.
Tie off your end securely.
Run your leather lace through the top jump ring.
Tie a knot in the top of your leather lace.
Just as another idea, when I was getting ready to take this photo, this beaded collar DIY works perfectly with this tassel necklace. Its a fun and unexpected mix.
You can make this DIY Tassel Necklace in less than an hour (depending on your beads). Its a fun and quick project and a great accessory.
