Making a wooden beaded tassel by stringing your own beads is a wonderful stress-free project that can take you away from even the most overwhelming of days. On this particular project, I decided to take things up a notch from the usual tassel with all natural wooden beads and simple jute tassel. Crochet covered wooden beads in gray, navy, and blue adorn this tassel as never before. Combined with a fun, gray-colored jute twine makes this diy decor project extra unique. The uses for this wooden beaded tassel is endless from layering on vases to displaying it on a mantel or simply laying it across stacks of books on a tray. Your creativity is truly your only limit…
Supplies Needed for DIY Wooden Beaded Tassel
- 20 mm unfinished or raw Wooden Beads
- crochet beads in desired color
- hemp string for stringing
- jute twine for tassel
- large needle (optional)
So many asked where to get the colored, crochet beads for this project, so here is the list of resources I used directly from my Amazon shop >>> Shop the Project- Wooden Beaded Tassel
- Count out your desired number of beads based on the length you want your tassel to be when completed. I used about 33 beads for this one. Decide what color pattern you’d like to create for your tassel and count out your colored beads at this point as well.
- Using your hemp string (and a large needle if preferred), thread your beads one by one in your desired pattern until finished.
- Take your jute twine and begin wrapping it around your fingers in a circular fashion or use any circle-shaped object until desired thickness for your tassel is reached. I wrapped mine about 13 times.
- Thread your hemp string inside the middle of your jute loop and tie a knot to attach it to your beads.
- Take your jute and tie a small piece around the top portion of your tassel and then tie off in a knot.
- Snip the bottom loop portions of your tassel and trim them as needed. Repeat for second tassel.
