Today has been totally exhausting, so I’m attempting to keep everything really simple and easy for you guys. I’m kind of embarrassed to say that it took me a surprising amount of time to figure out how to actually make tassels today. Mostly because I decided that I could figure it out on my own and didn’t need the help of the internet. I was completely wrong but I suppose it’s healthy to curse ones own hubris every once in a while. It keeps us all sane.
Embroidery Floss, I used several colors
Glue, technically you can just tie everything into place but I like to be extra secure
Tassels are a huge thing in fashion and jewelry right now and when we were in Italy I saw them everywhere. If you’re going to make these at home I highly recommend not being as unwaveringly stubborn as me and actually managing to get some direction/instruction. Unless, that is, you’re some sort of tassel making ninja. In which case I have no words for you. I think it was the whole looping of the thread end around the circle to make a knot that confounded me so much. I was trying to figure out how not to pull my own tassel and make everything unravel. That’s not what I wanted. Now all I have to do is actually put these on a piece of jewelry.
Lots of Love,
