DIY Tutorial: Gradient Tassel Earrings

OOH - Gradient Tassel Earrings Title
I am a huge fan of dangly earrings and I love how they can instantly brighten up a look. I’ve been seeing so many gorgeous tassel earrings on the market, so I thought I’d share just how easy it is to make your own! All you need is a handful of materials and you’re good to go.

They’re so versatile and you could make them in any colour scheme you like – I definitely plan on making a couple more just to match different outfits! Besides, you are not restricted to a gradient theme, go ahead and jazz it up with contrasting colours for that extra oomph!

6. Repeat Step 1-5 for the rest of the bundles and trim them to your desired length. You can have longer tassels if you prefer a longer, dangly tassel earring. I trimmed my tassels to approximately 3cm in length.

7. Using a long strand of thread and needle, tie a double knot on one end. You want to make sure that the knot is big enough so it won’t pull through your tassel. From the underside, thread the needle through the middle of the first tassel.

8. Thread through the rest of the tassels and secure it with a knot. Here’s a trick, you can hide the knot by threading the needle back down the middle and pull it taut.
