If you have some ribbon then you’re going to love this DIY. I get a lot of questions about tassel necklaces and I knew there had to be an easy way to make one. There are a variety of items you can use to create this tassel necklace.
The supplies you will need are:
3. Lobster claw or circle rings (you can find all of these in the jewelry supply section in Hobby Lobby)
5. Wire cutters
6. Tape measure
I’m using a variety of ribbons and I am cutting them all 17 inches long.
The first one that I am making is with a lobster claw. My lobster claw hook is 20mm and I purchased it from Hobby Lobby.
You want to fold your ribbons in half.
Cut a piece of wire and bring your piece of wire under your ribbon strips.
Bring the wire ends up and twist them tightly around the strips of ribbon.
Put the ends of the wire through the bottom hole of the lobster claw hook.
After you place the wire ends through the hole of the lobster claw bring them back under and twist them together underneath the ribbon strands.
Cut the ends of the wire off.
Now you will take a strip of ribbon and wrap it around your folded strands of ribbons. This will finish off your tassel. I wrapped it around and double knotted it.
You then clip it to any necklace you want.
I also made one using keychain rings.
I folded the ribbons in half and brought them up and through the key ring.
I then added a smaller ring so that it can slip onto a chain.
You can do this same process using smaller rings. I purchased all of this rings from Hobby Lobby in their jewelry making section.
I put the ribbons through the ring for this one.
I then folded the ribbons in half.
I took an extra piece of ribbon and wrapped it around all my other ribbons.
You will then pull the ribbon tight and double knot.
You will now want to add a smaller circle so that you can slip it onto a chain.
You can take your glue gun and add bling to your tassel.
These are so easy to make and I hope you have fun creating them.
