Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Take your lighter and lightly melt one end of your cord so that you can easily thread your beads onto it.

2. Take your 12mm silicone beads and thread them onto your cord. Slide them to the middle point of your cord. (If you are using a flashlight that doesn’t have an opening clip, you may need to thread the flashlight ring onto the strings at this step. These beads will create the first small loop before adding your double hole bead.)

3. Slide your one double hold bead onto one thread and push it up to the other 12mm beads on the string.

4. Thread your crafting needle on the opposite end of your string. Push your needle through the opposite channel of your double hole bead so that the cording makes an X shape within the bead. You should have both sides of your cord coming out of your double hole bead.

5. Slide the remaining 12mm beads onto the two cords coming from the double hole bead. Make sure that you split this number as evenly as you can on either side. (eg. If you have 24 beads, thread 12 on each side)

6. Tie a tight double knot to secure the beads and form your loop. The tighter you pull your strings, the more your beads will tighten and squish together.

7. Take your lighter and run it lightly over the double knot to fuse it. When cooled, slide your crafting needle onto one side of the cord and feed it through a neighboring bead.

8. When your cord is through the neighboring bead, pull it gently into the middle of that bead. This will hide and secure your knot.

9. Trim your ends, and lightly melt them with your lighter to prevent them from fraying.
