  • 1. Take your 6-inch piece of thread and make a knot that keeps a small loop. Set aside.

2. Then wrap your emerald thread around the card as shown.

3. Feed the 6-inch piece of thread under the wrapped thread and tie a double knot. Then slide the green thread off the card.

  • 6. Now take your scissors and cut the ends of the tassel. Snip a bit more to even the length.

7. Attach the earring hook to the small loop at the top. You may need to open and close it with your fingers or round nose pliers.

8. Repeat for the second earring.

  • Trust me, tassel-making is addictive. Once you’ve mastered the earrings, try this pendant necklace for another bit o’ green.
