DIY Tassel Necklaces



My fascination with tassels started at a young age. As a child I remember the sheer drapes that hung in my families living room has these elaborate gold tassels as tie backs and I always remember playing with them. The silky fabric felt so good on the fingers.

You can imagine my delight in the recent fashion trend of tassel necklaces and pretty keychain adorning purses.

The history of tassels goes way back in Biblical times where tassels were tied to garments as a reminder of the commandments! 😀

Now on to the DIY

what you’ll need: beads, string, leather cord and scissors
