DIY Tassel Earrings

by - April 23, 2020

Last year a good friend of mine gifted me a pair of tassel earrings for Christmas, and ever since, I've been rocking them like crazy. Even though I love wearing them, I thought it would be nice to switch it up a bit and make myself a new pair to wear. To my surprise, making tassel earrings was really simple to do, and today, I'm going to show you exactly how I did it.


  • Old pair of hoop earrings
  • Embroidery thread (optional 2 different colors)
  • Scissors


1.) Cut the top and bottom of the embroidery thread.

2.) Separate the embroidery thread into 2 strings per section.

(One embroidery thread should give you 24 strands.)

3.) Take one of the equal strings and attach it to the hoop earring using the larks head knot method.

4.) Secure the knot tightly.

5.) If you're using 2 different colored threads (like me,) add 6 sections in the center of the hoop earring with the lighter thread and add 6 more sections of the darker thread on both sides.

6.) Repeat the same step for the other earring.

7.) Trim the tassels to the desired length, comb the ends of the threads, and you are all finished!

*PRO TIP* Add a dap of glue to the back of the tassel earrings to prevent the knots from getting loose.
