- 1 x length of 60” regular cording
- 13 x diamond beads
- 1 metal clip (we used our new double hole clips in silver, found here.)
1. Take your cording and fold it in half. At the middle point, feet your cord through the loop on your metal clip and create a loop knot.
2. Thread on to one string 1 diamond bead. Either with a well fused end or a crafting needle, feed the other string the opposite way through the diamond bead.
3. Tighten up either end to push your diamond bead all the way up to your metal clip. Make sure that the bead is sitting centered.
4. On each string, thread another diamond bead.
5. Repeat step 2-4 to create your diamond box pattern. We liked the length of about 13 beads.
6. When you have a centered middle diamond bead at the end of your pattern, make a loop with both strings about 4” long. Loop a knot as tight as you can against your last diamond bead.
7. Take each loose string and thread it back down through the middle diamond bead and the two side diamond beads.
8. Feed one side through the next middle diamond bead, but leave a loop out. Feed your other string the opposite way through the middle diamond bead. Wrap the string once through the loop left out and pull tight on your working ends. By wrapping your string through the loop left out, you will create a single knot. By pulling on each side equally, your knot will end up under the diamond bead. Repeat this step if you want a second knot.
9. Trim your ends and melt them with your lighter. Make sure that you also run your lighter well over the large double knot to fuse it.
10. When your knots are cool, simply loop your soother of choice on the end.
