_embroidery floss in a variety of colours. I chose to do a ombre gradient. Do whatever makes you happy. one skein of thread makes two tassels, so decide how big of a necklace you want ahead of time. mine has 15.
_needle nose pliers.
_scissors. preferably sewing scissors.
What you do:
_2: figure out what kind of pattern you want. I chose to do a chevron shape with a gradient of mint to aqua and teal.
_3:take your loop of embroidery floss and snip one end so that it is now multiple single strands instead of one long strand. divide it into two.
_4: taking one half of your thread slip your bobby pin onto one end making sure all of the ends of your floss are threaded through.
_5:using the pin as your needle, thread your floss through one circle of your chain, starting in the centre.
_6:pull it half way through so that the length of thread is folded over the bottom of the circle of chain and there is an equal amount of thread in the front and back.
_7: cut a length of thread of the same colour and tie it around the top of the tassel to secure it, as close to the top as your can. tie a double knot and snip the excess thread.
_8:repeat the above steps working your way outwards until your necklace is completed. make sure all of your knots from step 7 are on the same side so that you have a back and a front to your necklace.
_9: using your needle nose pliers open the end ring on your chain and slip the ring on the other end through, using flat nose pliers to clamp down on the open ring to secure it. clip off any excess chain. If you like you can now use your sewing scissors to trim your tassels into any desired shape, I chose a chevron, or you can simply just clean up the messy edges and leave the ends even.
