I was first introduced to Gold & Gray's wood tassel bracelets by Sally and Molly from the blog, A Piece of Toast, and I instantly had one of those moments where I said to myself, "I could make that!" I made my way over to Hobby Lobby and picked up the essentials to make my own copy cat version, and I was very pleased with the outcome. My favorite way to style them is by stacking them to add some dimension to your favorite jeans and t-shirt look or with a maxi dress and a jean jacket.
Follow my instructions below for a fun, easy and cheap way to make a wood tassel bracelet:
What You'll Need:
1/2" wooden craft balls
Gold memory thread
Skeins of embroidery floss*
*Each skein will make one tassel. Get creative with your colors!
Step 1: Measure out 7 1/4 inches of elastic and cut. Depending on your wrist size, you can cut the elastic a little longer, but elastic will be it more versatile, size-wise.
Step 2: Thread the wooden beads onto the elastic. I used about 14 beads, total, on each bracelet.
Step 3: Tie it off and cut off the excess elastic. In order to secure it, knot it three times.
Step 4: Taking the skein, pull out one end out, measuring about 8 inches. Cut off this piece you've pulled out, leaving the rest of the skein in tact.
Step 5: Fold the skein in half.
Step 6: Use the cut piece (from step 4) to tie the skein in the middle. Knot three times.
Step 7: Measure and cut 8 inches of gold memory thread. Wrap tightly around the top of the tassel four times. Twist or tie to secure and cut off an excess thread.
Step 8: Cut open the loops at the end of each skein.
Step 9: Tie your tassel to the bracelet. Knot three times, cut off any excess material and you're done!
