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.

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

    Wow, Grace… amazing! And, I actually think I can make these.
    (heads up the links to the tassel colors you selected aren’t working). What a fun girls night in — with wine! — too.
