DIY: Simple Tassel Bracelet

Right now, just outside my door, there is a  blizzard (which I'm sure many of you have heard about). So, I decided to take full advantage of being trapped inside and chose to do a little DIY project. I'm loving the look of tassels lately- on jewelry, keychains, and even as a household decor. Tassels themselves are relatively simple and affordable to make. I chose to add them to a simple beaded stretchy bracelet that I made and think it looks super chic! 




What you need: Embroidery thread // Pliers // Jump rings // Scissors // Beads // Stretch Magic cord
  1. After making the beaded bracelet, make the tassel. Start by cutting a 10-12 inch piece of thread, which you will use later. Fasten the thread (I typically use half the amount that is in a package) in the middle with another piece of thread and then cut the loops on each side. 
  2. Fold the thread in half and wrap the 10-12 inch piece of thread that you cut around the top. 
  3. Tie a knot and cut the excess thread. 
  4. Cut the ends of the thread evenly and as short as desired. 
  5. Use pliers to open the jump ring.
  6. Loop the jump ring through the thread that you used to fasten the tassel together in step 1. 
  7. Attach the tassel to the bracelet and be sure to close the jump ring completely.

  10. Nice take on the mala bracelets - combining a bracelet like this with repeating a mantra is a great (and fashionable) way to meditate -
