Cut the embroidery thread.Lay out a whole bundle of embroidery thread and carefully separate the center to make an oval. Use the scissors to cut through each end to create two long bundles. Each of these will become a ghost tassel.
Make the tassel shape.Carefully put one end of a bundle through a jump ring and slide it down to the middle. Fold the bundle in half with the jump ring at the top.
Tie the tassel.Cut another length of matching thread, approximately 3 or 4 inches long, and wrap it around the top of the tassel bundle. Pull it snug and tie 2 or 3 knots. Trim the ends.
Draw the ghost face.Use the Sharpie to dot two eyes and draw a mouth for the face of the ghost. Press gently multiple times to make your marks precise without the ink bleeding too much.
Attach the fishhook earring.Open the jump ring just a tiny bit using the jewelry pliers. If you don’t have a pair, any needle-nose pliers will work and you may be able to do it with your fingers if the ring is thin.Slide the fishhook onto the jump ring, making sure the ghost is facing forward.Repeat steps 2 through 5 to make a second earring for your pair.
Finish the ghost tassel.Try on your earrings in front of a mirror and decide how much they need to be trimmed. You might want them long or short. I cut about an inch off of the bottom of mine.
Fluff up the tassel and you’re ready to wear them!
