STEP 1:

STEP 3: 

A)Wrap a piece of tape around the end of the craft cord. 

B)Thread the craft cord through the small wood beads. Leave several inches of craft cord on each end of the beads before cutting. 

STEP 4: 

A)Wrap the large strand of beads around the glass jar and tie a knot to secure it. Tip: Remove beads if needed to create a tight fit. 

B)Wrap the small strand of beads around the glass jar and tie a knot to secure it. Tip: Remove beads if needed to create a tight fit. Trim excess craft cord from the knots. 

STEP 5:

STEP 6: 

A)Tape the craft cord to a flat surface, as shown. Note: Leave about 5" of each strand above the tape. 

B)Lay the two left cords over the four center cords. 

C)Tuck the two right cords under the four center cords and bring them out over the two left cords. 

D)Pull both sides tight to slide the knot up to the top against the tape.
