Well I have gone tassel crazy again. This time I’m going to show you how to make tassels with caps. They are super easy to make and and the caps add a little more bling than just a plain old tassel.

I made these tassels for my Buddha Bead Tassel Necklaces. So let’s get started!

Instructions~

The white tassel I shown above is made out of Nylon thread. The Nylon thread makes a nicer tassel, the thread is loose and doesn’t stick together like the embroidery thread. The green tassel is made from embroidery thread, it still makes a pretty tassel so use what you have.

 

Wrap the nylon string about 15-20 times or more {depending on the thickness you want your tassel to be} around a 7-8 inch long piece of cardboard. I actually use a box lid, so fancy right? Carefully remove the string and tie another piece of thread tightly to the center of the wrapped string.

If you are using embroidery string, no need to wrap, just tie the string in the center, remove your paper tags and proceed with the next step.

Open the hook on your 2-inch eye pin with your round nose pliers. Hook it through the thread you just tied in the center of the string. Close the open hook end of the pin with pliers.

Add a dot of glue where the hook is looped through the thread to secure the knot and hook. Add a dot of glue inside the cap/cone.

Feed the straight end of the eye pin though the cap and pull tightly. You want the top of the tassel as far into the cap as you can get it. Let it dry.

Add your beads.

You may need to trim the end of the pin if it is too long. Mine was just right. Grab the tip end of the pin with the round nose pliers and curve it around to make a loop. Make sure the end meets the pin.

Trim the ends of the tassel and that’s it! You could add these to so  many things, jewelry, pillows, lamp or fan pulls, you name it!
