DIY BOHO TASSEL EARRINGS

Though I've been spotting tassel earrings from runway to magazines to blogs with ample of options from party-ready necklaces to bohemian earrings, i wasn't much fascinated- until i came across THESE  Isla earrings by Lena Bernard .And i immediately wanted to make a pair ,scroll down to see how i made one!




YOU'LL NEED :
  • A pair of old hoop earring silver or gold ( any size you prefer).
  • wire or Zari thread .
  • Embroidery floss at least 3 to 4 colors. 

Start by cutting thread in 4 inch per piece.Next take two strands of any color (you can use as many strands or colors you prefer ). 


Now fold the same strands in half , pick up the earring and lay that loop of thread under the bottom of hoop like the left image . It should form a knot like the ones in image above. 



After you're done creating knots trim the tassels to your desired length. Next take your wire or Zari thread grab hold of  the first tassel and slide away to make space to work and begin carefully wrapping around the base of knot.Continue doing the same process on both the earrings. 



I opted these silver hoops as it was all i had on hand and decided to go with gold wire for contrasting metal look. You can choose any desired hoop may be in circle or square or triangle and as many colorful threads.I added few more at the end pink and blue and whites.



 There it is!
