How to Make

Step One

Begin by wrapping your first piece of embroidery thread around three of your fingers  15 to 20 times. The more times you wind it around your fingers the thicker the tassel will be.

Step Two

When the tassel is wound snip off the remaining thread.

Step Four

Wrap a small piece of the same coloured thread around the tassel near the pencil. Secure with a double knot – but don’t make it too tight or you’ll find it tricky to get onto the necklace.

When all the tassels are in place and in the centre of the necklace, tighten them by pushing the horizontal tie up towards the chain. This will secure the tassels in place.

Cut through the bottom of each loop of the tassels to seperate the strands. Tidy up any longer threads so all tassels are the same length.

Little Button Diaries is the crafting and baking blog from two Brighton-based friends. We are Laura and Tia, and we share a love for all things creative. In the last couple of years we have both given birth to little girls – Harper and Amelie – and we wanted to start a blog to document all the things we get up to together. We’re very lucky that we only live round the corner from one another and have, well, pretty much everything in common. If we’re not chatting away about our blog we love to find new things to bake, projects to make and photographs to take. It’s not easy finding the time to make stuff with little ones running around your feet, but we want to show that having a baby doesn’t mean you have to stop doing the things you love, and that a lot can be achieved even in the space of a short nap! We’re not saying we are craft wizards, more ‘find a fault, make a feature’ kinda girls. We’re just doing the things we love because we love doing them and hope you will too!
