Hello Lovelies! Pretty gosh darn pumped to bring you the first of four lather statement necklace tutorials! Today we are tackling the leather tassel necklace. I pretty much wear these leather necklaces everyday. totally true! Ok, lets get to it.
Step 1: Use this template to cut out a perfect sized leather square
Step 2: Make a straight cut about 1/8 of an inch wide and set it to the side
Step 3: On the back of the leather, use a pen to highlight where the tassel will stop, this one is about 1/2-3/4 of an inch
Step 4: Cut your tassels, all the way across. These tassels are approximately 1/8 of an inch
Step 5: Take your glue and spread it across the top, DO NOT use a lot. Then take your first cut piece that you set to the side, fold it in half and place it on the left of the tassel.
Step 6: Start rolling your tassel. Slowly, dabbing excess glue as you go.
Step 7: Pinch the end, dab excess glue off. Hold until dry (if its fast dry glue) or you can use anything to keep it in place until dry (between two books, chip clip etc.)
Step 8: Let dry completely
Step 9: (optional) use a paint pen to add color
Step 10: Take a jump ring, using pliers to open it, string your tassel and also string the two ends of your chain all together. Close jump ring with pliers.
All done. Shiny and Perfect.
