I’m in love with this tassel necklace look that I found on Pinterest.

This particular necklace is from Ascot Friday and is currently sold out. Bummer, I know. So, I decided to make my own. Yes, this tassel necklace from Ascot Friday is make from horse hair and leather, but it’s also $32. So, I looked through my studio and realized I already have everything I need to make my own, although with less quality materials, but still, it’s free. Plus, this DIY necklace gives the same look and it took less than 20 minutes.

Wrap the entire spool of embroidery thread around the cording and the foam board.

Step 3:

Take the cording out from the tape and tie it together so there is a knot on the top of the embroidery thread.

Step 4:

Once the cording knot is secure, use your scissors to cut the bottom part of the thread. (This is similar to how you make a yarn pom pom.)
