DIY: tassel earrings

Have you seen the tassel earring trend going around? I love them and think they are so pretty and perfect for the holiday season! I wanted some but I didn't want to spend a ton of money, so I decided to attempt a DIY! They turned out so cute. 

Large Oval Jump Ring*
Embroidery Floss (there are all types and any will work!)
Pliers (they have "jewelry pliers" at craft stores but I just used the needle nose pliers from my toolkit!) 
*both easily found in the jewelry section of the craft store. 

Step 1: With help from the pliers, loop the oval jump ring around the embroidery floss.

Step 2: Loop the thred around the jump ring you just put on and secure with another jump ring. Remember to use those pliers!

Step 3: Give your tassels a haircut! Remember to make them even!

Step 4: Connect the earrings to your top jump ring using your pliers.

That's it! Picture this with a black dress and you have yourself a holiday outfit!

The holidays totally drain our budget so I try to save where I can. Purchasing #SecondHandFirst or diy-ing what you can is a perfect way to stay trendy and also on budget.
