Bohemian touches of raffia and tassels were all over the runways for summer, but these easy DIY statement earrings add the perfect touch of sophisticated style to dresses and casual T-shirts for any season.
DIY bohemian raffia earrings
- Black and natural colored raffia (available at most craft stores)
- A pair of hoop earrings. If you don’t have a pair in your jewelry box, you can find a plain pair at most craft stores or on eBay.
- Small gold beads (mine were 5 millimeters but make sure the bead is big enough to fit onto your earring)
Take a strand of both black and natural raffia and wrap
it three times around your three middle fingers.
Pull the raffia loop off of your fingers and snip the ends.
Pinch the top of the tassel and make a knot around it with
a short piece of raffia, leaving a small loop above the knot.
Repeat steps one to three to make another two-toned tassel.
Repeat steps one to three to make four more tassels, this time only using black raffia.
Open the hoop earrings and slide on one gold bead. Add a black tassel, the mixed colored tassel and another black tassel by sliding the earring through the top loop of the tassel. Finish with another gold bead.
Trim the tassels if necessary. We made the outer black tassels slightly shorter to give it more movement.
