I’m a graduate student, and money is always tight. I love making gifts. Homemade gifts can be more personal, and it saves money! So stay tuned for a couple of posts coming up with easy holiday gifts. I don’t have my ears pierced, but all the women in my family do. Tassel earrings are very in style right now, could not be more perfect!
- Embroidery thread ( pick and choose your colors, I like to have gold to have that elevated look)
- Needle and thread
- Earrings ( you can buy some on Etsy here)
Cut off a section of the embroidery thread so that you can use later. With each embroidery thread will make two tassels.
Step 2 & 3:
Measure out half of the embroidery thread. Bend the thread in half.
With the extra thread, you set aside on the beginning tie off at the middle. Tie it as a tie as you can.
Cut both looped ends so that it looks like the picture on the right.
Now bend the embroidery thread in half and wrap the extra embroidery thread from the beginning. This has to be really tight. I like to wrap it a couple of times.
Cut off the uneven frayed end. Then do the other half of the embroidery thread.
Almost done!! You have 2 new tassels. Adding gold is optional. Just cut off a small section and wrap it around the top.
With the needle and thread, add the tassels. You can change the order or add more or fewer tassels.
Tie off the top and add the earrings.
There you have it!! A great pair of earrings for you or a loved one! Enjoy!
