Watermelon Bead Pattern

Summer is a fun time to enjoy crafting with beads. The FreeKidsCrafts Team created this Watermelon pattern to hang on your backpack or key chain.


Lanyard Hook or Key Ring

2 Feet of Bead Cord

13 Green Pony Beads

29 Hot Pink Pony Beads

7 Black Pony Beads



White Glue


Stiffen the ends of the cord with white glue. Let dry. Tie a lanyard hook or key ring to middle of the cord. On the right hand cord string on one hot pink pony bead. With the left hand cord go through the same bead in the opposite direction. Pull on both cords, tightening the beads up close to the lanyard hook. Repeat with the second row, stringing on 3 hot pink pony beads. Weave a total of seven rows using the pattern as a guide. Tie off each cord close to the last bead. Dab a bit of white glue on each knot. Let dry. Trim.
