DIY Tassel Bracelet

Last week Caitlin of Southern Curls and Pearls shared a DIY for tassel bracelets and I just knew that I had to try it because they're so cute. I'd actually seen this on Pinterest a couple of times and it was one of the infinite things I pinned but never got around too. Luckily, I finally decided to try it when I saw how easy Caitlin made it look and I am so happy I did. These are so simple to make and and they add such a simple statement to your wrist. I actually made four of them, two for now and two with fall colors!
Supplies:
gold wire
crimp beads
stretchy jewelry cord (I used 0.7mm)
beads
embroidery floss
scissors
pliers
jump rings (I used 6mm)
credit card

Directions:
1) String Beads on Jewelry Cord and set off to the side
2) Cut 1.5 Feet of Embroidery Floss and fold into 4 sections and place a jump ring in the center
3) Wrap the remainder of the embroidery floss around the card
4) Cut embroidery floss around one edge of the card and hold the strings at the center
5) tie embroidery floss around the center of the group of strings
6) Wrap gold wire around the embroidery floss
7) Trim the embroidery floss down to desired tassel side
8) Place two crimp beads and the tassel on one side of the jewelry cord and loop the other side through
9) Crimp the crimping beads with the pliers
10) Cut down extra cord
11) ENJOY YOUR NEW BRACELET

Erin
