Ghost Tassel Earrings DIY

I've noticed that tassels have been a main staple of jewelry-design lately. And, they're really a fun and easy element to add to a piece. When thinking about creating a Halloween design some weeks ago,  the simple shape of ghosts appealed to me, but I knew adding tassels would give them a trendy flair to make them feel more modern.

I created a video detailing the complete process I used to make these Ghost Tassel Earrings.

Whether you use sturdy paper or tin, begin your process by creating a template of your ghost shape, then trace it onto the material twice. Cut out the ghost shape. If using metal; file and sand the edges of your ghosts. I also darkened the backs of the tin with Novacan Black Patina.

Punch three holes along the bottom of each of the shapes for the tassels and one hole at the top to hang your ear wires. I chose to make the holes on the bottom larger to place the tassels directly in them. Of course, you could also simply place your tassels on jump rings before attaching them to the ghost.

From there, create eyes for your ghosts. I riveted on the large circles that were punched from the bottom. If using paper, glue on small circles before sealing the entirety of both shapes.

Create and attach the tassels. You can see how I made them in the video above beginning at 14:02. It's a really simple process. Once your tassels are attached, add your ear wires with jump rings. And, your fabulous Ghost Tassel Earrings are done - just in time for Halloween fun!

If you have any questions about the process, please don't hesitate to ask.
