Want the look of those fun summer bags with the tassels and poms hanging from the straps? Try this DIY Pom + Tassel Bag Charm tutorial and add some boho to your favorite handbag. For more projects like this one see my Fashion + Jewelry page.
These days it seems your handbag is not complete unless you have a tassel bag charm attached to it. This is especially so with beach bags. Today I am going to show you how to make your own to update a bag you may already have to look like the latest trend. This project is a really quick one. I used store-bought tassels this time to save some time.
I found the tassels for this project on Etsy. If you want to make your own tassels I can show you how in my DIY Hoop Tassel Earrings post. The ones I bought are the perfect size and thickness for making tassel necklaces too. So keep that in mind if you are thinking of making some of those. 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 (Etsy)
- Gold jewelry chain
- Large jump rings
- Lobster Clasp
- Clover Pom Maker
- Yarn: Hot pink
- Sharp Scissors
- Jewelry pliers
Take both premade tassels and add them to the large jump ring.
Using the yellow, smallest Clover Pom Maker make a pink pom. Add a Jump ring to the pom and add 8 links of gold chain to the jump ring.
Note: For more info on exactly how to make pom poms using the Clover Pom Maker see my Pom Maker post).
Add the pom to the jump ring with tassels. Add a jump ring to the small tassel. Then connect 4 links of gold chain to the small tassel and add it to the main jump ring with the larger tassels and pom. Add a lobster claw clasp to the large jump ring and clip the tassel on your bag.
Fluff up the tassels and poms and that’s it! Super easy to make.
