If you go to any store in the mall right now, you’re bound to be inundated with fringe everything, from shoes to clothing to handbags to jewelry. Fringe is a huge trend for spring and summer, but it can feel tired pretty quickly. You can get in on the fringe trend in a more unique way by embracing tassels, which are basically just another version of fringe (kind of – in my book, anyway. They have a similar shape!). Tassels look best on accessories, especially jewelry. And sure, you could go out and buy this stuff, but why do that when you could make your own tassel accessories?
Tassels are great for crafting, even for beginners, because they’re super simple to create and can make anything look instantly more boho, fresh, and fun. There’s also something about them that makes them perfect for spring and summer. The below tutorials show some seriously adorable DIY tassel accessories, from unique bracelets, necklaces, and earrings to bags, bedroom decor, and even shoes. Try something different this season!
1. Use bright embroidery floss and a chain to create a super simple tassel and gold bracelet.
Okay, so these aren’t real tassels, but the frayed ends of these bracelets definitely look like tassels. You can use an old chain bracelet you’re bored of or find a super cheap one at a craft store or Forever 21.
