So take a break and get in touch with your creative side by creating these stylish tie-dye tassel earrings. Who knows, this could be the start of your next side hustle.


Step 1: Gather Supplies


Step 2: Find the Center of Your Embroidery Thread

Your thread will likely come wrapped in a loop-like shape, so you will need to find the center. Once you find it, use both hands to firmly hold the loop at each end.


Step 3- Double Thread in Half

Loop the thread twice around your fingers, to make a smaller, thicker band.


Step 4: Cut and Loop

Cut a piece of thread and tie in a knot on top through the center loop.


Step 5: Cut the bottom loop in half

Cut the bottom of the loop in half, creating fringe.


Step 6:Create a Head

Create a head on your tassel by wrapping a colorful thread close to the end of one size of the tassel and tie a knot.


Step 7: Prevent Fraying

Cut off the extra head thread and add glue so it doesn’t fray.


Step 8: Add Hooks

Add an earring hook and repeat for other earring.


Step 9: Time to Tie-dye

After, follow instructions on your dye kit to mix dye. Shake well to prevent clumps of dye from settling in the bottle.


Step 10: Dip Dye

Pour dye in small cup and dip tassel as far as desired. Dunk a few times to allow color to fully permeate.


Step 11: Hang Dry and Rinse

Once dyed, let them hang to dry, then rinse with cool water to remove excess dye. Wear them to add an extra yay to your day!
