1. Wrap your embroidery thread

Cut out a rectangle from a piece of cardboard; you could even use a box from an old medicine bottle.

Wrap your thread around the middle part of the rectangle about 70 times. Then, cut a piece of string and tie it around the wrapped threads to hold them in place.

2. Make the tassels

Next, cut it on the other end (opposite the knot). This will create a beautiful tassel effect.

Then, tie it off and cut the ends. 

Make another two of these, and you could make it more exciting by switching up the colors. 

Ensuring all the tassels are the same length

How to get the tassels the same size

One trick to make sure all the tassels are the same length is to line each tassel up with the cardboard and cut any odd ends.

3. Assemble the tassels

Cut the string off the top of each tassel and find the center. 

Threading the tassels together

Grab another piece of thread and feed it through the center of each tassel, stacking them on top of each other.

4. Add the earring hooks

At this point, add the earring hooks by feeding the main thread through the holes. Then, tie a knot around the hole and into the tassel to secure it in place. 

Tip: Put the earring over some steam to straighten the threads, and you’re done!
