Good morning! Today, I’m excited to show you a super-simple way to update some basic hoops into bold, DIY boho tassel earrings. I love a massive, statement earring don’t you? In the past few weeks, we’ve made leather feather earrings and recycled vinyl record earrings, but I think these DIY boho tassel earrings make the biggest impact on an outfit. In just a few minutes, you can makeover your old hoops into something more vibrant and with more color and texture.

How To Make DIY Boho Tassel Earrings:

Start out by taking some embroidery thread and tying a knot around the end of one of your hoop earrings. I like to add a small dot of superglue around my knot to hold it in place.

Wrap your embroidery thread around your hoop earring until you reach the other side. Tie another knot on the other side and superglue to secure. The superglue does a great job of keeping your embroidery thread from slipping into your earring closures.

Next, it’s time to make some tassels! I created an easy little video on how to make your own tassels below. For today’s tutorial, I used 10 tassels in total but you can choose to make however many you like.

Wrap a business card with some of your thread about a dozen times

Then cut then loop once it is done

Cut the bottom so it looks like a tassle

Add one extra piece of string around the tassel close to the top so that it doesn't all come undone easily

Now that your tassels are all ready to go, it’s time to attach them to your hoop earrings. Tie a small knot to hold them in place and once they are secure, trim the tassels all together so you have a uniform look.

Tip: If you’d like them to fan out more and have a stiffer look, just spray them with some Spray Starch and lay flat to dry before wearing.
