Crafty gal like me? Try this SUPER easy (less than $10 and under 3 minutes) DIY tassel necklace to add a little jazz to your wardrobe! What you do explained: 1. Wrap the tassel where it is gathered with the craft wire, using the pliers to shape. When you like the way it looks, trim and tuck the ends. Make sure each end is securely tucked- the wire should hold itself in place. 2. Trim the loop off of the tassel with scissors. Spread the large jump ring with pliers and insert one end through the top of the tassel near the wrapped part and rotate until the end comes out the other side. With ends outside of the tassel, close the ring with the pliers and rotate the closed ring back into the tassel so that the opening is hidden. 3. Using the pliers, open two small jump rings. Add one to the large jump ring on the tassel and the other to one end of the necklace. Close rings with the pliers. 4. Thread the open ("un-ringed") end of necklace through the small jump ring on the tassel. 5. Open third small jump ring and use to attach the lobster clasp on the open end, closing and securing with the pliers. 6. Toss on your new necklace and get flappin'!
