Last week I made some cute Pom & Tassels Basket Beach Bags for our Upcycle Challenge. Today I am going to show you how I made the cute Pom Tassel Bag Charm on the front of the small tote. It really is simple so this post will be quick.
I found some great store bought tassels on Etsy to make the charms. They are the perfect size and thickness for tassel necklaces as well. All you need is some jewelry findings and pom maker and you can dress up any bag! Let’s make some charms!
Pom Tassel Bag Charm
- Tassels: 2 large, 1 small
- Gold jewelry chain
- Large jump rings
- Lobster clasp (optional)
- Clover Pom Maker
- Yarn: Hot pink
- Sharp Scissors
- Jewelry pliers
Take both tassels and add them to the large jump ring. Using the yellow, smallest Clover Pom Maker make a pom.
Add a Jump ring to the pom. (For more info on exactly how to make pom pom’s see my Pom Maker post).
Then add three links of chain to the pom and add it to the jump ring with tassels.
Add a jump ring to the small tassel. Then connect 4 links of gold chain to the tassel and add it to the main jump ring with tassels and pom. You can either attach the jump ring with all connected to your bag (my tassel is added this way to the tote) or add a lobster claw clasp to clip the tassel on your bag. Fluff them up and that’s it! Super easy to make.
Dont’ want to order a tassel? You could also make your own tassels for this craft see my FALL Tassels Tutorial for the how-to! Just replace the bars with jump rings!
