To start making your own tassel bag charm, you’ll need a few basic supplies such as embroidery thread, scissors, and a keyring or lobster clasp.

You can choose any color combination of thread that you like for your tassel; bright neon colors are perfect for summer while muted earth tones are great for fall.

DIY Tassel Key Chain


embroidery floss and supplies


tie the clasp to the tassel

Cut the white hemp cord to measure 20 inches, fold it in half and loop it through the bottom loop on the clasp. Flip the ends through the loop and pull down tight on the ends. {I chose the hemp cord because if you bend it or tie it, it stays put. This cord is also small enough when doubled to go through the beads}.

add beads to tassel

Add your beads by inserting both strands of the hemp through the bead.

tie the floss to the keychain

Layer your floss in the order you want your tassel color to be. Some floss will be longer than others, so you may have to rewrap the strands, for example around a book, so they are all the same size.

Insert the floss between the two hemp cords below the beads and double tie tightly. Then tie into a knot to secure. Trim off the leftover hemp.

tying a tassel

Fold the floss down. Cut another piece of hemp to around 9 inches. Wrap the hemp around the top of the floss and double tie the cord again. Wrap each end of the hemp around the floss then tie the ends and trim.

Cover this area with gold or silver metallic floss in the same manner as the hemp.

trim the tassel

Gently comb the tassel and trim the bottom. And that’s it! Once you make the first one, you can make them rather quickly! So fun and easy to make!
