Dawn has been incredibly obsessed with tassel earrings lately and we decided to make some. This is a surprisingly easy DIY and we ended up making two pairs in less than 20 minutes.

Here are what you will need for this DIY:

  • Tassels
  • Tassel caps (actually I have no clue what the proper term is for this)
  • Jump rings
  • Earring hooks
  • Craft knife
  • Super glue
  • Eye pins
  • Pliers (not pictured)

If anyone is wondering, we got all of these supplies at Brighton Accessories House in People’s Park Complex in Chinatown.

As you can see from the pic above, the cord holding the tassel together is an eyesore when the tassel cap is on. We’re going to remove it.

Carefully cut it away.

You will end up with something like this.

Stick the eye pin through the bottom of the tassel.

Pull it through and make sure the eye pin stays put and doesn’t go through the whole tassel.

Wind the loops around the tassel, you don’t even need to make sure that it is secured cause the glue will hold it together. Coat the inside of the tassel cap with glue and thread the pin through the hole in the tassel cap. Just make sure everything goes underneath the tassel cap neatly.

It should now look like this.

Do the same with the other side.

Shorten the rest of the eye pin by cutting it and making a small loop on the top of the tassel cap. Protip: stick the end of the eye pin back into the tassel cap again.

Using a pair of pliers, link the tassel and earring hook together with a jump ring.

Your tassel earrings are now ready for wear!

I really hate to sound like a broken record, we’ve had issues with people copying and pasting our entire DIY blog post on their own blog (with full instructions and sometimes even hot linking our photos).

While they link back to ours, it is foolish to assume they will still visit our blog when the full instructions are already posted on theirs. I’d hate to post a disclaimer every time I post a DIY post but this problem comes up every few DIY posts or so. We do appreciate people liking our DIY posts and we feel the best thing they can do for us is to post one or two photos and link back to us from there.

Does anyone have a proper method to solve this? We’d be grateful for any kind of suggestion.
