Tried It: Wooden Beads & Tassel Necklace

Recently, I’ve spotted a number of bead and tassel projects on Pinterest. Chunky beads plus mini pony-tail tassels equals a kind of folly that appeals to me. I followed instructions from to make a multi-colored tassel, but if you don’t mind going monochromatic, this how-to from is even simpler.

I used 3/8″ wooden beads and bead cord (twine? I’m not sure what it’s called–sorry!) and embroidery floss for the tassels. I have to confess that the necklace is probably too chunky for me to wear (I’m afraid it bears too near a resemblance to the painted macaroni necklaces preferred by preschoolers). I plan to break mine up into stretchy bracelets with tiny tassels. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
