Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.


Step 2.

Cut green Braiding Cord to 60 inches in length. Stiffen both ends by rolling it between your finger with a dab of craft glue. Allow glue to dry. This will help when threading the beads.


Step 3.

Create a lark knot on the key ring. To learn how to create a lark knot, click here. To create Row 1, thread (2) green Pony Beads onto the left hand string. The version shown here is made from the limited edition Halloween Beads Pet kit. If you don’t have this kit, you can still make a Jack-O-Lantern Bead Pet using individually purchased Pony Beads.
