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
Step 1: Wrap your colored floss around a firm cardboard about 50 times (this determines the size of your tassel).
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.
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.
Step 8: Tie knots around the lobster clasp a few times to secure it as close to the wood bead as possible.
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!
