DIY: Boho Chic Interchangeable Tassel Necklace!

Tassel Necklace 00 Supplies
After seeing so many pretty tropical boho chic necklaces on Pinterest and Instagram, I decided to create my own! But since I couldn’t decide on what color – I decided I’d make my necklace interchangeable! =)

What you’ll need:

  • Wood bead necklace (found already made at Michael’s & JoAnn Fabrics)
  • Additional Wood beads
  • Knitting floss in desired colors
  • Lobster clasps
  • Scissors

Tassel Necklace 1
Step 1: Wrap your colored floss around a firm cardboard about 50 times (this determines the size of your tassel). 
Tassel Necklace 2
Step 2: Take another piece of the floss and scoot it under the wrapped floss and tie it.

Step 3: Cut the wrapped floss on the bottom.

You now have an item that looks similar to a tassel!

Step 4: Take yet another piece of floss and wrap it around the main tassel about 5-7 times.
Tassel Necklace 6
Step 5: Tie the remaining part of the wrapped piece. Cut the ends so they blend in with the rest of the tassel.

Step 6: Thread a wood bead on top of the tassel.

Step 7: Thread a lobster clasp on top of the wood bead. 
Tassel Necklace 9
Step 8: Tie knots around the lobster clasp a few times to secure it as close to the wood bead as possible.
Tassel Necklace 10
Step 9: Cut the ends of the knotted ties by the clasp.  
If you want extra security, dab a drop of super glue on the knot to keep it in place.

Step 10: Hook the clasp onto your beaded necklace! And ta-daa!
You now have your first color for your interchangeable tassel necklace!!
Repeat the steps until all of your tassels are complete!
   
Have fun wearing this cute necklace with multiple outfits!!  I can’t wait to show you how I style it on my Florida vacation!!  It’s so versatile and cute!
    
Happy Crafting!

    I can’t seem to find the already made wooden necklace online – anyone have the same problem?? I haven’t checked in stores yet.
