Faux-Suede Tassel
You can also make zipper-pull tassels from faux suede or leather (or the real stuff, if you prefer). If you make tassels from a faux suede/leather, make sure to choose a material that has two good suede/leather-like sides.

Steps:

1. Cut a piece of faux suede or leather 1/2 inch wide and double the desired length of the tassel.

2. Cut the ends to a sharp angle and thread the strip through the hole on the zipper pull. Match the raw ends to make the tassel even.

3. Slit the strips as many times as you can (my maximum was four times) to within 1/4 inch of the zipper pull.
