The tassel trend seems to be here to stay and does not appear to be going away anytime soon. From home décor to fashion, this adorable and colorful accent piece adds a serious punch! I always find myself drawn to jewelry pieces that have tassels adorning them. The colors and the textures pop and really provide a statement. I decided to take my tassel jewelry inspirations and turn them into actual wearable jewelry.
A stackable wooden bead tassel bracelet is super quick and easy to make. If you are new to jewelry-making, this is the perfect place to start. The clean look of the raw wooden beads pairs really well with the soft colorful tassel. Warning: These wooden tassel bracelets are so easy to make, you may find yourself making “just one more” to add to your jewelry collection!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Clear Stretch Jewelry Cord
- 1/4 Inch Wooden Beads
- Embroidery Floss
- Jump Ring
- Jewelry Pliers
- E6000 Glue (Optional)
Step 1: Wrap your stretch cord around your wrist. Add an additional 6 inches of cord to the end. The additional cord will allow you to tie the end around your wrist to finish off your bracelet. Once you get the proper length of cord, begin stringing your beads. Continue stringing your beads until you have enough to cover your wrist.
Step 2: Grab your embroidery floss and cut it in half in the center.
Step 3: Keep one half of the floss and pull out one string. Set your string aside. You will use it later.
Step 4: Remove the paper covering and unfold your floss. Grab your jump ring and open it using your pliers.
Step 5: Slide all of your floss through your jump ring until you get to the center of your floss. Once in the center, use your pliers to close your jump ring.
Step 6: Grab the string you set aside earlier and wrap it around the top of your tassel. You will wrap it three or four times. You want to leave enough string so you can tie a knot.
Step 7: After you tie a knot around the top of your tassel, trim the excess strings.
Step 8: Slide your cord through the top of your tassel. Then, take the ends of your bracelet and tie a double knot to secure it. Trim your excess cord. If you want, you can dab a little bit of E6000 glue to the knot to really secure it.
Step 8: To finish your bracelet, grab your scissors and trim down your tassel. I cut about two inches off. You can keep your tassel as long or as short as you would like.
Now all you have to do is make a few more so you can layer them to add some serious pizzazz to any outfit!
