How to Make a Wood Bead & Tassel Necklace
Craft your own boho chic style when you make this Wood Bead & Tassel Necklace! The earthy round beads are the perfect contrast to vibrant neon tassels. Customize your necklace by adding more or less tassels in all of your favorite bright colors.
Loop 20, 6" strands of floss.
Slide floss through jump ring
Slide floss through a 7mm jump ring. Bring floss ends together, hold the jump ring and tug on the floss ends to even them up.
Tie & wrap floss
Cut another section of floss, about 12". Tie floss around the section of floss below the jump ring. Wrap about 8 times and knot. Trim excess.
Trim bottom section of the tassel so ends are even.
Continue making tassels
Repeat Steps 2 through 4 to make 4 more tassels.
Bead & attach tassels
Cut a 10" section of bead wire and string on 22 wood beads and an acrylic bead at each end. Attach a jump ring to each tassel and attach to the wire between every fourth bead. Add a crimp bead to the each end of the wire, then loop wire ends back through the crimps and through several beads. Leave a small loop at each end and crimp the crimp beads.
Cut 2, 5" to 6" lengths of chain.
Attach jump ring & clasp
Attach a jump ring to the ends along with a lobster clasp on 1 end.
