Make these fun and colorful tassel earrings with only a few materials to spice up your everyday wardrobe! These beautiful tassel earrings also make great gifts for friends and family that we’re sure they’ll love them! This activity is also a great way to gather your friends and have a fun time crafting on a Zoom, Skype, or Facetime call. 

Materials

  • Embroidery thread (regular sewing thread works too but will take more loops)
  • Earring hooks with a loop or hoop earrings
  •  Cardstock or cardboard
  • Scissors

 

Instructions

  • Loop your thread around your piece of cardstock or cardboard 7-8 times if you are using a single thread. And then cut the end.

***To achieve multicolored tassels place different colored threads together and loop them around the cardstock or cardboard about 3-4 times

Earring Hooks:

  • If you are using earring hooks open the loop using pliers and hook the thread on, then slide the thread off of the cardstock or cardboard.

  • Close the earing loop with the pliers.

  • Cut a piece of embroidery thread and tie it around the top with a knot.

  • Finally cut the loops and trim the ends. 

Hoop Earrings:

  • If you are using hoop earrings, use the hook end of the hoop and loop the threads through then slide it off of the cardboard or cardstock.

  • Cut a piece of embroidery thread and tie it around the top with a knot
  • Repeat this process 6-7 times using the same color or different colors
  • Finally cut the loops and trim the ends.
