DIY Tassel Necklace #PaintYourWay

One trend this summer that I have been LOVING is the long tassel necklaces everyone has been wearing. I wanted to put my own twist on this trend, though, so I created this DIY Tassel Necklace with hand-painted wooden beads using Sharpie Paint Markers.

I love how bright and colorful my DIY Tassel Necklace turned out — the neon yellow tassel really makes it pop! And I was able to use a variety of colors so that it will look great with lots of different outfits.

Remove one of the skeins of thread from the package, but make sure to keep the shape. Cut a small piece of thread from the end of the thread, about 5 inches long.

Insert one end through the split ring and fold it in half.

Tie the small piece of thread around the top of the thread.

Cut the ends to create a tassel. You can leave the ends long, or trim them up a bit to make a shorter tassel.

Using the Sharpie Paint Markers, paint the beads. I painted a zig-zag design using three colors and painted the entire bead with the remaining two colors. I used a sharpened pencil to hold the beads while I painted them.

Since I had 5 colors, I decided to create a pattern using 20 beads in each color.

String the beads onto a piece of the remaining skein of thread. Halfway through, add the tassel onto the necklace. I also rotated the direction that I was stringing the patterned beads at that time, so that they would appear to be going the same direction.

When you’re finished stringing the beads, tie off the end of the necklace. You could also use a jewelry closure to ensure that it remains closed.
