Step 1: Gather the Materials
You will need:
- yarn / nylon string (you can also use cotton but nylon has a smoother look)
- one big bead per tassel
- small beads
- jewelry wire
- wire cutters (or scissors), round nose pliers and chain nose pliers
Step 2: Wrap Yarn Around Hand or Cardtock
Depending on the size of the tassel and the thickness of the yarn will be the number of times you need to wrap the yarn. For a small-medium tassel it will be around 20 times, for a larger tassel 35 times.
Step 3: Insert Wire
In order to keep the yarn together before cutting it, insert jewelry wire in the middle of it and cut it around 1 in / 2.5cm.
Step 4: Hold and Twist Wire
With the help of the chain nose pliers hold and twist the wire tightly.
Step 5: Tie Top of Tassel
Cut a piece of 6 inch / 15 cm yarn and tie top of the tassel snugly (with one end). Wrap the remaining yarn around tassel 5 times. Tie and cut.
Step 6: Trim Tassel Ends
Ensure that the ends looks smooth and evenly.
Step 7: Add the Big Bead
Add the big bead in the jewelry wire. Make a loop with the wire on top of the bead.
Step 8: Attach Tassel to the Necklace
Use jewelry wire or elastic to insert the smaller beads. Add the tassel.
Step 9: Be Creative and Enjoy!
Add as many tassels as you like to your necklace in the color and size you like!
You can also create beautiful necklaces as gifts.
