I am so glad the weather has finally cooled off here in North Carolina, the summer seemed way to long this year, right? It’s time to pull out the long sleeves and sweaters and to update my fall wardrobe. to do just that I made these super cool fall colors tassel necklaces.
I love the bar necklaces that are trending now and it’s really easy to add a tassel to them for a great pop of color! I also found a bunch of jump ring tassel necklaces on Pinterest and I made a few of them too! These are so easy to make I whipped up all of these necklaces up in one afternoon. They are made with leather strings so no beading involved! Yay! Here’s how to make them~
Fall Colors Tassel Necklaces
- Suede Leather Cord , brown, black, tan, white and black
- Gold Hollow Tube
- 7mm Gold Jump Rings
- Embroidery floss, large DMC Embroidery Floss or Artsie floss and regular size floss
- Jewelry Pliers, if needed
- Hot glue & gun
Bar Tassel Necklace
Cut a 45 inch long piece of leather cording.
Add the bar to the string.
Cut a 5 inch piece of floss off of the embroidery string bundle. Wrap the embroidery string over the bar.
Add a dot of hot glue, tie into a double knot and pull tight. Wrap the string around the tassel knot and hot glue the ends down. To keep the tassel from moving, push the tassel aside and add a small dot of glue to the center of the bar. Move the tassel back.
Trim your floss on the ends. Tie your leather in a knot to the length you would like the necklace to hang. Mine are around 40 inches long.
Jump Ring Tassel Necklace
Cut a inch 45 inch long piece of leather string. Add ten jump rings on either end of the tassels and between how ever many tassels you will have. In other words, if your necklace has three tassels, you will have 10 rings- Tassel -10 rings -Tassel- 10 rings -Tassel-10 rings. Tie your leather to the length you would like the necklace to hang.
To make the tassels~
Fold a bundle of embroidery string in half and feed through a jump ring. Cut a 5 inch piece of the same floss off of the embroidery string bundle. Tie the string in a knot tightly at the bottom of the jump ring. Add a dot of hot glue and pull tight.
Wrap the string around the tassel knot and hot glue the ends down. Add the tassel to the leather string between the 10 Jump rings and that’s it!
TIP: If your tassels are wavy when you are finished, you can use an iron to smooth them out. This works on the leather too!
