2 skeins of embroidery floss
1. To craft your own DIY tassel necklace, unwrap two skeins of embroidery floss and cut an 8” strand and put to one side. Cut the skeins of floss in half using the 6” Amplify Fabric Shears and bundle both cuts of floss together. Place the fold over a length of twine cut a little longer than the desired necklace length.
2. Wrap the 8” strand of floss around the top of the embroidery floss several times. Tie tightly to secure the tassel at the end of the necklace.
3. Fill the twine with beads until the necklace reaches the desired length. Secure the two ends together with a knot.
4. Lay the tassel flat on your work surface and trim the ends to a blunt, straight end to complete this simple DIY necklace that’s sure to be the perfect accessory to any outfit.
