Tassels are all the rage right now, in fact I’ve made quite a few videos using tassels (links below) and I love all the different things that you can use to make them. I’ve made tassels using leather, chain, strands of beads, and of course, different types of cording.
- Turquoise Tassel Necklace
- Leather Tassel Necklace
- Crystal Tassel Earrings
- Tassel Focals
- Chain Tassel Earrings
In today’s video I’ll show you how to make a cute and simple tassel using cord. I bound mine with wire but you could use the same cord, strips of leather or anything else you can think of that would do the job.
You can hang your tassels from key chains, zipper pulls, the end of a bracelet or any place you want just a little bit of dangle.
Next week I’ll have a video showing you how you can use your tassels to make a quick and easy but very, very trendy necklace.
