DIY // tassel keychain
I decided to get real hands on with this project. My key chain needed something other than, well, keys. Enter the DIY side of my brain. I like tassels – they are simple and classic and way easy to make.
Step one: feed the leather strips (about 6 inches long) through the smaller key chain – leave one out for step 6.
Step two: fold the strips over the key chain.
Step three: twist the wire about half an inch below the fold to secure the strips.
Step four: cut the wire.
Step five: not really a step…just what the tassel should currently look like.
Step six: take the extra leather strip and tuck into the wire. Wrap around the tassel to cover the wire.
Step seven: feed the end of the strip through the hole above the wire wrap under the fold.
Step eight: feed the end of the strip through the wrapped leather. Pull tight to secure it.
Step nine: cut the ends to make all strips even. Attach to the bigger key chain. Viola!
