Love this DIY Leather Tassel Keychain - Click for more! Leather is one of the most versatile products to craft with. We love using it in both traditional ways and finding new uses for it. You've probably seen it popping up in a variety of colors, and it's making its way into crafting, home decor, furniture (other than the sofas and upholstery we've seen for decades), clothing, etc. It's obviously been around for a loooong time and been used in just about every way imaginable. We are especially excited about the trend of brightly colored leathers used in home decor and fashion. Today we're super excited to teach you how to make a really simple, cute and inexpensive leather tassel that is perfect for adorning a bag, using as a keychain or even putting on a chain for a cute necklace.

-scissors
-hot glue and glue gun

We took about a 2" strip and folded it in half over the keyring.  Secure with hot glue. Continue rolling your tassel until it's completely rolled. Secure the end with more hot glue.

We love how simple and cute these little guys are! Is it weird that we want to add tassels to everything? We love them! It would be super cute to make as gifts for friends! What color would you make? xoxo -Mallory & Savannah
