Materials


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.

 

Step 4.

 

Take your right hand string and lace back through beads from the other end.

 

Step 5.

 

Pull cords tight to form this row of your Jack-O-Lantern Bead Pet.

 

Step 6.

 

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to create a second row of green beads for Row 2.

 

Step 7.

 

To create row 3, thread the following through the left hand string: (7) orange Pony Beads. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 8. 

 

To create Row 4, thread the following through the left hand string: (9) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 9. 

 

To create Row 5, thread the following through the left hand string: (2) orange, (1) black, (3) orange, (1) black and (2) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 10. 

 

To create Row 6, thread the following through the left hand string: (4) orange, (1) black and (4) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 11. 

 

To create Row 7, complete the same pattern done for row 5: (2) orange, (1) black, (3) orange, (1) black and (2) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 12. 

 

To create Row 8, thread the following through the left hand string: (2) orange, (3) black, (2) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 13.

 

To create Row 9, thread the following through the left hand string: (5) orange Pony Beads.  Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to complete this row.

 

Step 14.

 

To secure your key chain, tie the ends of your cord with a double knot at the end of each row, making sure the knot is snug against the beads. Trim excess thread with scissors.  Clip onto your backpack and show off your Jack-O-Lantern Bead Pet!
