DIY Multicolor Tassel Earrings.

diy tassel earrings // the stripe blog: easy tutorial to create layered multicolor tassel earrings.

A while back, my friend Jenn wore the most fabulous multi-color tassel earrings on her blog. I immediately clicked over, thinking about buying a pair… but then when I got a better glance at them, I realized how easy they would be to make on my own… those big statement earrings are really just four small tassels layered over each other. And so, this tutorial was born! It is so easy. I whipped up the above three pairs in under an hour. I chose to sew the tassels together (well, more like stringing them on thread) but you could probably use glue as well. My rule is to sew when I can… the results hold up better in the end.

They’d make such a cute Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriends!

Materials:

  • Set of mini tassels (I used this pink + red set, this purple set, and this neutral set). This shop stocks SO many great tassels – you don’t have to buy a set, you can make your own combination… just be sure to use the 1.25″ size. HERE is a link to all of their 1.25″ tassels – pick and choose your favorite combinations!!
  • Ear Wires
  • Needle + Thread
  • Sharp Scissors

Lay out your tassels in the order that you’d like them to appear. I went with pink ombré in this case.

Double thread your needle, quadruple knotting the ends.

Open up the tassel that you want to put on the bottom.

Stab it with the needle, being careful to pierce exactly through the center. This is the hardest part, it took me a few tries.

Pull the thread all the way through.

Repeat for the rest of the tassels.

When you get to the end, just tie a knot through the top loop of your top tassel. Fan out the tassels.

Open up an ear wire and attach through the top of the top tassel.

    • graceatwood says 2.2.17

      You totally could!!!!

  5. Sara says 2.2.17

    I’m totally making a pair (or two!) thanks! However the links for the sets do not work – can you repost them?

    • lauren says 2.2.17

      • graceatwood says 2.2.17

    • graceatwood says 2.2.17

      Try again! I just tried and all the links worked on my side – WEIRD!!!

      • Sara says 2.3.17

        So weird that its working on your end and not mine – just checked again and the links dont work 🙁

        • graceatwood says 2.4.17

          ACKKK – There is this stupid issue with Etsy – every time someone buys the tassels, she has to reload them. But you can buy them all here: http://bit.ly/2l9eufS

    So amazing!!

    • graceatwood says 2.2.17

      Thank you!!

  7. Sophie says 2.2.17

    These would make great earrings.

    • graceatwood says 2.2.17

      yay! hope you give ’em a try!!

  8. Jess says 2.2.17

    Silly question…but do the tassels all slide down on each other? Is there anything separating them? I LOVE this idea!

    • graceatwood says 2.4.17

      Haha nope, nothing separates them – just the tassels! They are perfectly proportioned so that you don’t have to worry about them being too loose… or sliding around. 🙂

  9. Jenn Lake says 2.2.17

    Love these so much! Such a great idea!
