These tassel key rings are great to make not only for yourself but also matching ones for your friends. They could be great little gifts that could either be actual key holders or even just act as zipper charms. So, let us learn how to make these incredibly easy tassel key rings.
Materials you will need:
- Leather cord
- A piece of cardboard
- Large beads
- Split ring (the main ring for the key ring)
Fold a piece of yarn in half with the split ring in the middle.
Thread 2 to 3 beads through the ends of the yarn. Leave a little gap from the ring so that the whole thing can move around when putting in the keys.
Cut a piece of cardboard that is 6 inches by 3 inches and wrap the leather cord around the wider length of the cardboard. Make at least 5 to 6 loops.
Remove the cardboard and use the ends of the yarn used in step 2 to make a tie around the middle of the cord bundle.
Fold the cord bundle in half along the tie. Take a smaller strand of the leather cord and wrap it around the bundle, near the top and glue it in place.
Cut the edges to give a more finished look and you are done. Seeing how quick that was, you could easily make multiples of these in one sitting only!
