  • Step 1

    Step 2

    Using your pliers, open a jump ring at the end of the chain. Slip the opposite end of your chain onto the open jump ring, and then use your pliers to close the loop. You should now have a closed chain necklace that can be slipped over your head.

  • Step 3

    Cut your floss next. For each tassel, you will need 3 4-inch strands of floss. You can use any colors, but for this example (which has 2 blue tassels, 3 magenta tassels, and 4 gold tassels), I cut: 6 4-inch blue strands; 9 4-inch magenta strands; and 12 4-inch gold strands.

    Step 4

    You'll make the center tassel (magenta, in this case) first. Take three strands of the magenta floss and thread it on your needle. Pull the needle through the center of one of the jump rings on your chain. If it's hard to get through, just gently pull on the chain as you wiggle the needle through. Pull one half of the floss completely through the ring. To attach the tassel to the chain, make an overhand knot. Pull it tight, and then make another overhand knot, pulling it tight, as well. Don’t worry if ends of your tassel are ragged or uneven.
