Sarah's DIY Tassel Bracelets

Today's post is a little different than normal, but I think you'll like it! My friend Sarah of Stylish, Sassy, and Classy made these adorable tassel bracelets, and I loved them so much that she's letting me share her DIY with you! Check out her original post here!



Here is what you are going to need:
A good pair of scissors
Pliers ($7 at hobby lobby)
Stretchy clear cord for the bracelet
Thin wire (gold looks great!)
Beads (much cheaper at Hobby Lobby than Michael's)
Embroidery thread, each pack makes one bracelet
A card to wrap your thread around (gift cards work well)
Gold jewelry crimps


1. Cut off about 1 1/2 feet of the thread and fold it in half twice. Now cut off about 1-2 inches of the wire and make a small circle big enough for the thread to fit though and twist it off with your pliers. Now thread your folded thread though your circle and leave it in the middle, and set aside.

2.Take the rest of your thread and wrap it tightly around your card and then cut at one end. Now tie the thread you set aside in the middle with your little metal circle on top.

3. Now hold down your threads to create the tassel, and then wrap some of the wire around it tightly and then twist off with your pliers. Take your sharp scissors and trim your tassel.

4. The hard part is over now, thread your beads onto your plastic cord, thread both sides of the cord though a crimp and then the tassel, see picture above, and then crimp them down with your pliers to keep your bracelet together.
