Happy Friday friends! I hope everyone had a great week. I couldn’t wait to share this blog post with you today! I’ve been loving tassel earrings lately, and every time I get on Instagram I always see at least a couple of people wearing the cutest ones! Grace from thestripe.com has a really easy tutorial on her blog on how to make your own DIY Tassel Earrings which is what I used making mine. You can check out her tutorial here. If you’re not familiar with Grace’s blog, she also has the best reading lists she posts each month summarizing what she reads. I’ve read some really good books off of her reading lists! I always look forward to her posts from her Wellness Friday series to her outfit inspo – I’m especially loving her handbags a lot lately!
If you remember in my “What I’m Looking Forward To In March” post, I talked about how I was excited to make these tassel earrings. I wanted to follow up and let you all know how it went! They were so easy and fun to make! It really took no time at all to make a pair of earrings. By the time I laid everything out, decided which colors I was using (really love the ombre look) and made the earrings it took under an hour. The other 2 sets didn’t take as long since I got the hang of it and knew what colors I wanted.
Materials you will need:
– Tassels – 1.25″ Size (Play around with the color combo! This part is so fun to mix and match or you can choose to have all solid color tassels)
– Earring Wires
– Thread + Needle
– Pliers (Use to open and close the ear wires)
For my earrings I chose to do a 2 and 3 tier tassle instead of the 4 tier. However, every pair I’ve seen people wear have been the 4 tier, but I just wanted to mix it up a bit! I’m planning on giving a set to my sister. She loves them! They would be a great gift or you can even have a fun girls night making them. I think they are such a fun statement earring to wear for spring and summer.
For the instructions on how to make the earrings, Grace has a great tutorial on her blog which you can go to here. She demonstrates making the earrings by including a picture for each step which is really helpful. I hope you enjoy making these earrings just as much as I did! Some other color ideas are red, white and blue for July 4th, earth/jewel tones for fall and solid colors – yellow or white would be fun for summer or black with a dressier outfit look.
