How to Make Tassel Earrings
- Prepare the Embroidery Floss
Measure out 25 strands of embroidery floss and cut into 6-inch lengths.
- Separate into 2
Cut the embroidery thread bundle in half to make 2 bundles, one for each earring.
- Add Jump Ring
Slide a jump ring onto the center of each bundle of embroidery thread.
- Create the Tassel
Cut a 9-inch length of embroidery floss per earring. Fold-down the sides of the embroidery thread bundles and wrap the 9-inch strand, towards the jump ring, and tie into a knot.
- Wrap the Earring
Continue to wrap the tails of that thread around several more times and tie off in a double knot and trim any excess tails. Note to tie the knot in the “back” of the earring.
Repeat steps 4-5 for the second earring.
- Trim the threads on the earrings
Use the pointy end of the thread ripper to comb out the embroidery floss into single threads. Trim the bottom edge of any longer threads.
- Attach earring hooks
Using the jewelry pliers, attach the earring hooks to the jump rings!
