One accessory trend that I’ve noticed  is everywhere this year is tassels! Whether they’re beaded, metallic or suede, tassel earrings are a great statement with any outfit.

I wanted to share how I made these super easy suede tassel earrings. No crafting experience necessary!

Materials:

  • Soft suede cording lace
  • 2 fishhook earwire hooks
  • 2 leather cord end caps
  • needle nose pliers
  • scissors
  • Ruler
  • tape

First, cut the suede cord to the approximate length you want for the earrings. For these earrings I used 4 inch cord pieces.

Next,  cut a strip of tape and lay it sticky side up. Tape down both ends to prevent it from moving.

Attach the suede pieces side by side on the tape. Don’t worry too much about them lining up perfectly at the top or the bottom since you’ll cut both sides.

Cut the bottom end into a straight line.

DIY Tassel Earrings Glue

Glue the end to secure the bead cap. I used my glue gun here, but I recommend a bead glue that will last more permanently like E6000 Jewelry & Bead Glue.

Finally, attach the fish hook earwire using needle nose pliers.

And voila! Enjoy your suede tassel earrings!  Make them in different lengths and colors, you can find the suede cording lace in various colors at Micheals.
