Easy diy tassels from embroidery floss
Easy Embroidery Floss Tassels.  A single skein of embroidery thread is all it takes to make these cute tassels. Perfect for keychains, zipper pulls, home decor or even cell phone dangers.  SUPER EASY TO MAKE

I have seen these cute tassel keychains and cell phone danglers popping up in local stores and online, so I wanted to show you just how easy it is to make your own. Embroidery Floss Tassels can be made in almost ANY color, since there are limitless types and colors of floss.  Plus with the metallics and reflective polyester fibers you can get some gorgeous tassels. 
For my version I used the Radiant Treasures floss, which is polyester and reflects the light beautifully.  But you could also use standard Embroidery Floss or even the Light Effects/Metallic type which looks like spun metal.
Easy diy tassels from embroidery floss I made my tassels directly on jewelry Rings with claw clasps so they could be used as a keychain or zipper pull, but you could put them on standard rings if you wanted to use them in other ways.

 You could also hand these tassels off a backpack or on a purse, or even use them in decorating.  Make them in holiday colors and turn them into Christmas ornaments.  They really are just that versatile.
