For all of you busy crafters out there (like me!), today is a great day! Along with some of my best blogging friends, I’m participating in Craft Lightning. We are sharing SUPER fast crafts that you can complete in 15 minutes or less! This month’s theme is “Obscure Holiday” which made me laugh out loud! There are SO many calendars with National (insert anything) Day floating around that I feel like every day is a holiday. And interestingly enough, I also feel like every day is a good day for margaritas, so I chose National Margarita Day! And no, that’s not Cinco de Mayo haha! Today I’m sharing how to make these really easy DIY Tassel Charms that you can use for your Margaritas – and these DIY Tassels also work great as wine glass charms!

When is National Margarita Day, you ask? Break out those Margarita glasses, because it’s just around the corner – February 22nd! Having a holiday like National Margarita Day in the middle of winter is GENIUS, especially for those of us dealing with a snowy and cold winter. This is an obscure holiday that I can definitely get behind.

I am definitely one of those people that love having little glass charms. When I’ve had more than one glass of wine, I need to easily recall which glass is mine. Tassel earrings are really popular right now and they’re so adorable! I created a fun and colorful version of tassel charms that are perfect for margarita and wine glasses.
Make DIY Tassel Charms
What you Need to make DIY Tassel Charms:
-Embroidery Floss (you can buy an entire rainbow of Embroidery Floss on Amazon!)
-Hoop Earrings (you can find them in the jewelry making section of craft stores, or on Amazon)
-Margarita Glasses filled with your favorite Margarita flavor!
Start out by choosing the colors of embroidery floss you would like to use to make the DIY Tassel Charms. I chose bright, fun colors perfect for National Margarita Day or Cinco de Mayo!
Put three fingers together and wrap the floss around your fingers creating a loop – you can judge the thickness just based on how thick you’d like the tassel to be.
Cut off the thread, leaving both loose ends at the bottom of the loop. Carefully remove the loop from your fingers and place one of the hoop earrings into the loop.
Pull the loop tight onto the earring. Using a smaller piece of thread, wrap it around the top of the loop, leaving long ends to knot when you’re done. Tie off thread.
Using sharp scissors, cut open the bottom of the loop. I love my Gingher scissors – if you don’t know about them, you should definitely check them out on Amazon!
You now have a tassel!
Trim the bottom of the tassel to the length you desire.
Slightly bend the end of the hoop earring so it will stay closed, and place around your glass!
While you are drinking your Margarita, make sure you are wearing a great shirt! This DIY Tacos and Tequila Shirt is easy to make and is perfect for National Margarita Day!
