Step 1. First, choose your colors. Since summer is in full swing, I decided to use colors of the sea, complemented with some bright corals. I used a mix of embroidery floss and thin yarn, but you can easily other materials such as suede cord and such!
Step 5. Pull the tails and tighten the loop, forming a knot. Repeat until you form five DIY fringe tassels using your other embroidery floss colors, or more if you prefer! Make sure all the knots are facing one way – they don’t really look that great when they’re facing different sides. I centered my blue green fringe tassel, followed it with coral fringe on either side and then finally the sea green fringe on either side of that.
Step 6. You can leave it raw and uncut for that maximum boho chic feel, or cut them like I did – I roughly cut mine in a pointed arrow shape as you can see below. If you want to cut yours, make sure you use the prior piece you have cut as a guide for the second earring, or cut them at the same time.
Step 7. Finally, add some embellishments! I used some silver chain to adorn the earrings even more. For the outer chains, I used 14 links and for the inner chains I used 16 links. Feel free to make it longer or shorter – even finish the ends with a charm!
And you are done! I really love the color combination and texture these DIY fringe earrings have. Not only is it a contrast of soft and hard materials, the texture of the yarn and the embroidery floss gives it a fun vibe as well.
