Yesterday, I shared some of my third trimester bump style and with a breezy bohemian outfit, I wore these pretty and dangly tassel hoop earrings. I saw some similar tassel earrings in a shop a few weeks ago for about $40 and wasn’t totally sold on the color, so I wanted to make my own. Then I was really sold when I ended up realizing that it only cost me $6 to make these. Are you ready to make some too?
Really, the entire project only takes a few things:
- Hoop Loops
- Embroidery Thread
- I stole the earring hook pieces (that go in your ears) off a pair that I don’t wear.
First, WIND one color of embroidery thread around a piece of cut cardboard about 3″ long. I wound the thread 12 times before REMOVING the loops from the cardboard.
Next, FOLD the loop around the metal earring hook, then TIE & WRAP the top of the loops with a contrasting colored thread. I used gold.
Then, CUT the loops off the bottom of the tassels and trim them up. You can ATTACH either earring hooks or even a gold chain if you’d prefer to make yourself a necklace.
Not only are they so fun, but they’re super light. I am usually so bothered by earrings after one or two hours that I have to take them off, but I forgot I had these on.
