pour se faire une ceinture comme chez les grands créateurs à 1200E

When Erica and I spotted tassels, tassels, tassels and more tassels accessorizing the Spring 2011 collections, there was no doubt that we wanted to do a DIY incorporating this beloved fringe ornament. And of course, it only made sense to call upon Tamar, the other half of Erica’s The 2 Bandits and tassel expert, to help us out. Inspired by the tassels seen in Sonia Rykiel and Gucci‘s Spring Collections, we’ll teach you how to make a tassel belt with leather and a few items from the hardware store.

You’ll need at least 2.5 yards of rope, 2 pieces of leather of a similar color measuring 3.5 x 4.5 inches (we cut a purchased 3.5″ x 9″ leather piece, from Michaels, in half), 2 small nuts and 2 half inch compression nuts from the hardware store, 4 wooden beads, a glue gun, a ruler, a pen and a pair of sharp scissors.


You’ll start by first cutting fringe into the leather in order to make the tassels. Draw a line 1/4″ from the edge of the length of the leather, which will serve as a guideline. Using the ruler draw parallel lines about 1/8″ apart, along the width of the leather. Carefully cut along those lines, stopping at the guideline each time. (Click images to enlarge)

Add any combination of beads and nuts to the end of the rope, making sure to string the large nut lastly with the opening facing out. Glue the end of the rope to upper left corner of the leather with hot glue. Tightly roll the leather along the guideline.

Close and secure the tassel with just a few drops of glue. Rotate and work the tassel into the opening of the nut; it should be a tight fit. Put a good amount of glue around the circumference of the top of the tassel, and press the wooden bead down into it.

Repeat on the other side of your rope and voila! You’ve just made a tassel belt!

We’ve made it long enough so that it goes around the waist twice but of course, you can make it any length you wish. Thanks to Erica & Tamar for the tutorial!

Hyper original !!!
le plus dur peut-être sera de trouver le cuir. Du simili rendra moins bien. Mais faire son shopping couture dans les rayons bricolage...l'idée et séduisante !
Perso, je remplacerais les éléments de plomberie par des perles de fimo, aspect métal dans le même esprit, mais ce serait moins dangereux de prendre un " coup de pompon " !
Bon dimanche
