Click on printables for an enlarged version of the beaded bunny to use as a pattern and directions on how to make a half hitch.
The following are basic beading instructions:
Step 1: Begin by folding your ribbon or cord in half. Using a half hitch, secure it to a key ring or lanyard hook as shown in the diagram.
Step 2: Stiffen each end of the ribbon or cord with scotch tape. The ends should resemble the ends of a shoelace. This will make it easier to lace on the beads.
Step 3: Using the pattern as a guide, lace and weave the beads onto the ribbon or cord as shown in the diagram on the printables page. Make sure that you pull the strands tight after completing each row.
Step 4: Finish by tying off with a double knot. Some patterns may have two knots. The knots are shown on each pattern as small circles. Trim off the excess ribbon or cord and secure the knot(s) with a drop of craft glue.
