DIY Bohemian Disc + Tassel Earrings

Happy Friday! Today we have a super easy DIY weekend project that is as cute as a button! We are going to make boho earrings with crochet discs and tassels.
What you need:
*4 crochet discs (pattern given bellow)
*2 embroidery floss for 4 tassels
* filling
* 18 big metal rings, 2 small jump rings  and 2 earring hooks
* tapestry needle
Crochet Discs Pattern (make 4)
Ch 4 and join to make a ring. Sc 5 in ring.
Round 1: sc2 in every stitch (10)
Round 2: repeat rnd 1 (20)
Round 3: sc2, sc1 (30)
Round 4: sc1 around (30)
Round 5: sc2, sc1 (45)
Round 6: sc1 around (45)
Leave a big tail which you'll use to join 2 discs together.
Thread the needle with one of the tails and sew the 2 discs together. Leave a small opening before you end, fill the disc in and sew to close it.
Make 2 long tassels. Instructions here.
Attach the ring to the head of the tassel and insert it into the disc from behind so that it falls naturally and does not turn.

On the upper part of the disc attach a chain of 3 rings, skip 2-3 stitches and attach another such chain. Join the 2 chains by 1 big ring onto which you attach a small(er) jump ring with the earring hook on it. Consult below picture carefully.
And with that, the earrings are done!
The downloadable / printable copy for this pattern is available here.

Have fun making them!

Oo these are lovely. I made little tassel earrings a couple of weeks ago and was very happy with them. Yours are much more 'wow factor' though!

Your ear rings are cute as a button, Maya. Love those bright colours. You just keep on keeping on with amazing designs!

I saw these earrings on your IG feed and thought they were super rad. so thank you for the tutorial. I am guessing that the doilies (the crochet) must be super close to each other to make sure that the polyfill does not come out.

Tassels add a special charm to any jewelry!

Thank you Kim!

The crochet discs are sewn together so that the filling is secured inside.

So hip! They remind me of lollypops and look just as sweet!
It's your fault that my list of 'Want-to-make' gets longer and longer! ;-)

WOW!! Wonderful splash of color! 💕 Thank so much for sharing the pattern. I have to try it! And shared on Google+ Have a lovely weekend, dear! 🍃🌸🍃

Maya Kuzman said...

Yeah! I thought of naming them lollypops because the variegated yarn gives that effect :)
I am happy you like them!

Maya Kuzman said...
