This post brought to you by Beadalon–Makers of great findings and DIY jewelry supplies. Thanks Beadalon for the sponsor love!Tassels are still having their moment.
I ain’t mad about it either. I love flair.You can make your own tassels super easy with Beadalon’s tassel maker and some of that embroidery floss you were gonna use for that cross stitch project. For a tip-I like suctioning the tool to the top of a plastic bead storage box.This is the tassel maker. You can adjust the mandrels and make a ton of different sized tassels. In this tutorial, I’m showing how to make tassel charms. You can also loop a wire through and make a wrapped loop if you want to add a bead cap over the top of the tassel (see bracelets above).Either way, I like to tie off the top of the tassel so it is bound. You can use a contrasting thread color too.Loosen the mandrels and slide the bundle off. I tied mine at both ends so I could get two tassels for the work of one.Cut the bundle in the middle to create the two tassels.You can leave them like this or….Comb them out with a fork to make them nice and fluffy. You can also wrap wire around the tie or add seed beads.Get the tassel maker tool from Beadalon.com.You just never know where a quick little project like this will take you…All you have to do is start.
