I’m finally back with another D-I-Y!💃
Today, we will be making tassel earrings! It’s one thing I’ve personally lusted after for so long but haven’t been able to get. Does anyone else ever wonder why tassel earrings are so expensive? I’m all about affordable fashion and will not be spending N10,000 on a pair of earrings anytime soon. I made myself three variations & will be sharing the steps in a three part post dedicated to tassels earrings, just because they are so worth it!
Today, we’d be making the most straightforward pair-and they will only cost you 250 naira. Yep, you’re welcome! Teehee.
Let’s get to work now, shall we?
What you will need:
•Silk or Embroidery Thread in any colour of choice (N200)
•One pair of earring hook (N50) OR a pair of clip on studs (I used studs because, lazy)
•A pair of scissors
•A small square shaped piece of cardboard
Step 2- When you are satisfied with the fullness, pick up your scissors and cut the thread away from the cardboard like in the photo below. (I wasn’t satisfied with this fullness by the way and ended up having to make another tassel. So don’t be too lazy. Make that tassel as full as you want!)
Step 4: Cut a single piece of thread and tie it around the center of the tassel threads, carefully. Do this about three times to secure the knot.(you also should not do this while wearing fake nails, guys. I suffered so you don’t have to. Learn from my mistake 😂)
Step 7: At this point, you’d want to attach your earring hook to the top of the tassel for the finishing step. But in my laziness, I had a bright idea! I took a pair of clip on studs (which I picked up for 200 naira in the market last year) and simple affixed it to the tassel like so.
Thanks for stopping by!
