DIY Beaded Earrings

DIY cute earrings for the summer, even if you're spending it mostly indoors.

If you follow my instagram, you will see that I made these earrings late last year. I made them in a hurry since it was for a trip, so I never got around to making a tutorial on how I did it.

*click items to shop

glass beads(for this project I am using seafoam luster and crystal, last year I used rainbow pinkpink, and light pink.)


1) Cut at least 4 - 4.5 inches of the jewelry cord for each beaded tassel.

2) String on your beads. I used 23 of the seafoam beads on each tassel, the 24th bead was the crystal bead.

3) Tie a double knot at the top of the cord.

4) For the last bead (the crystal bead), take the end of the cord and insert it into the top of the bead and pull it through. Then double knot at the end.

5) Cut off the excess cord at the end of the tassel and dip the double knot in glue. Let it dry for at least 15 minutes before handling.

6) Okay, here is the struggle part. Sadly, I don't have a photo of my success.  
Each beaded tassel should still have the excess cord at the top. Gather each tassel that you will be using for 1 earring and tie the excess cords together in a double knot.

7) Squeeze some glue into the tassel cap. Then, push in the double knot into the tassel cap, use the tip of the scissors to help you push it in. Let it dry for 20-30 minutes.

8) Spread some glue on the earring post and place your gem. Let it dry for 15 minutes.

9) Open the jump ring with the pliers and hook on the gem earring post first and then the beaded tassel cap. Secure it close with pliers.

10) Redo steps 1-9 for the other earring! 
* If you're making more than 4 beaded tassel per earring to use bigger tassel caps*

Cheers to looking cute at home! 😍 💕
