Today we’re sharing a colorful way to make a tassel necklace… and here’s the best part – it’s totally easy to make! All you’ll need are a few basic materials from your local craft store and twenty spare minutes. Your friends will beg you to make them one too! So let’s get started.
Here’s what you’ll need for your necklace:
- 18″ cotton rope
- 24″ gold chain
- Assorted embroidery floss
- (4) wire pins with loops
- (4) 1/4″ jumprings
- Embroidery needle (not pictured)
Begin by cutting a 12″ piece of rope and tie the end of the first embroidery floss color 2/3 of the way through the rope piece as shown above. Tie it in a double knot so it stays secure.
Next, position the tail to the right and begin wrapping the floss over the tail, around and around until you have wrapped about an inch of the rope. Tie the end of the pink floss and leave an inch long tail.
Start your next color, in my case, yellow. Tie the yellow around the rope so that it is flush up against the pink. Wrap the yellow around its own tail as well as the previous one. Tie a knot at the end and do the a couple more colors in the same manner until you have about 4 inches covered.
