How to make lace earrings

Lace may make you think of old-fashioned clothes or decor but it actually comes in a variety of modern styles. This long, looped lace is an example of a more fashionable-looking lace. That means it's the ideal material to make these tassel-like earrings for a very on-trend look.
With the addition of gold twine, these earrings take on a glam and stylish vibe. Want to make these for yourself? Watch the video and read the instructions to see how. Once they are finished, pair these earrings with an updo hairstyle so you can be sure they can be seen and you have a simple way to add a bit of playfulness to your outfit.

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.
