With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s coming fast upon us, opportunities for gift giving and the need for quick and easy gifts abound.

These easy tassel pendant necklaces are the perfect thing to whip up as a thank you gift for a hostess, or a quick gift for an unexpected guest.

Change up the materials (perhaps a leather tassel?) and you could even have gifts for guys, such as key chains or rear view mirror dangles.

As I mentioned in the video, (twice in fact, lol) I had SO much fun going through my beads and trying to find ones that would work for this project.

I hope you have just as good a time creating yours!

Tools and Materials:

You can always just leave a long length of cord for typing in a bow around the back, but you have a few extra minutes, cord ends or ribbon ends are a much neater finish:

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

In last week’s video I showed you how to make cute little hemp cord tassels. Today we’ll put them to good use by dangling them from the ends of this very simple but on-trend beaded bar necklace.

The sky is the limit as far as choosing beads for your necklace, smaller ones seem to work better than huge, even teeny tiny seed beads look great in this design, but use whatever looks good to you.

As I mention in the video, the trickiest part of putting this necklace together is keeping the loops of the eye pins oriented in the correct direction so your necklace chain doesn’t get twisted up. Other than that it’s super quick and easy!
