make this: fringe tassel keychain

This is an easy project that takes about 5min to do, needs only a couple of supplies and makes a cute accessory for those sometimes boring keys you might be lugging around.

I used a suede fringe which can be purchased off the roll at most fabric supply shops.  Other alternatives would be leather or thin polyester fringe.

  • Lay out your fringe and snip one piece off, this will be used for the loop of the key chain.
  • Glue the end of that to the end of the fringe.

  • lay out that glued section away from fringe
  • take edge of fringe and start rolling- neat & tight around the end you just glued.
  • per your discretion stop when you like the look of how thick your tassel is (i rolled 4 times), then leave it alone for just a min.
  • on the piece you left out- place the ring through then snip off to a desired length for how much loop you want hanging from your ring.

  • flip the end around itself so that the ring is now in the loop, glue the end to the inside of the last roll you did.
  • you will be rolling one last time so cut the fringe so that the last roll can cover the end of your loop you just glued
  • roll then glue the edge securely over the end piece, if need place a little glue inside and squeeze shut.
  • let dry, then attach to key chain.
