how to make tassels cover

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.

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.

friday findings-tassel focal

Here’s a quick and fun way to use bits of chain to create jewelry tassels that can be used as accents or focal points. You can make them as big or small as you like, use all the same chain or a mixture of chains. Adding beads, pearls, crystals or charms to the ends will only serve to add to the interest.

This Nancy Tobey focal bead has been in my stash for a while and I thought it could use something dangling below it as an accent. All it needs to be a necklace is a bit of cord to string it on.  Slightly smaller tassels would make great earrings.

We’d love to see your projects based on this tutorial at my Facebook page in the “Your Creations” album.

Enjoy the video. Happy creating!
