Materials
- Lace
- Scissors
- Ruler (optional)
- Hot-glue gun
- Gold twine

- Pearl beads
- 2 earring hooks
1. Cut off a 1-inch section of lace using scissors. (Use a ruler if you want to be precise.)
2. Add hot glue to the top of the lace and pinch the lace together to create a tube-like shape.
3. Cut off the looped ends of the lace using scissors. It should now resemble a tassel.
4. Wrap gold twine around the top of the tassel and secure with hot glue. Cut off any excess twine with scissors.
5. Feed fishing line through the top of the tassel and tie it off with a knot. Leave a long tail of fishing line before cutting it off from the rest of the roll.
6. String three pearl beads onto the fishing line.
7. Tie the fishing line attached to the tassel onto the earring hook. Secure it with a knot and cut away any excess fishing line.
