I've had my eye on a few leather tassel key chains lately, but never got around to buying one. They are pretty inexpensive on Etsy and can now be found in major stores like American Apparel. But why buy one when you can make it in less than 5 minutes for just a few bucks???

- Key ring - from dollar store
- Leather lace scraps - had on hand, but can buy at any craft store
- Super glue
Just cut your leather lace into strips of equal length. Gather them together and then fold over the key ring. Using a hair tie or zip tie, secure the laces so they remain gathered. Slide the tie down a bit and use another lace strip to wrap the laces together and then use super glue to secure the lace.
So quick and so easy! Plus you can customize the key ring and leather colors any way you want! Here is the finished product:
There are plenty of variations out there. Here are a few that I love:
Rolled Up Tassel from Honestly WTF
Leather & Ombre String Combo (totally doing this to mine) from Twinkle & Toast
Knot Fringe Tassels from Because I'm Addicted
