(( Projects )) Beaded Snake key chain

In this tutorial I will be showing you how to make a Beaded Snake Key Chain.


Materials:
Ribbon (any size), two different colored beads 45 one color 2 a different color, Super glue, and scissors.


Step 1:
First fold your ribbon into equal half's and tie it in the middle so you have a knot in the middle of the ribbon.


Step 2:
Next take one bead from the 45 count (you leave the 2 colored beads out for a while) and you slide it onto one ribbon (doesn't matter which) and line it up with the knot.


Step 3:
Then take the other ribbon that doesn't have the bead and you slide it through also so the bead is wrapped,then you pull both ribbon sides so it is knotted but no tightly.


Step 4:
Next take the second bead from the same 45 count and slip it onto another piece of ribbon (doesn't matter which) and pull it up so it is lined with the last bead.


Step 5::
Now put the other ribbon in that doesn't have the bead on it and put it through the bead so it is also wrapped. And again pull both ends so it is knotted.


Repeat the steps until you have 7 beads knotted in 1 row.


Step 6::
Next grab 2 of the same colored beads from the 45 count and you slip them both onto 1 piece of ribbon and slide them up to the top.


Step 7:
Then grab the other piece of ribbon that doesn't have the beads and you slide it through one then the other then pull both ends to knot it.



Step 8::
Now take 2 of the same beads again and you slide them onto 1 piece of ribbon and all the way to the top so they are lined up with the last 2.


Step 9::
Next slide the other piece of ribbon that doesn't have the beads and you slide it through both, then pull both ends to knot it.


Repeat steps until you have fourteen double beads down the middle.

Now you have the tale of the snake and the body of the snake done.

Step 10::
Next take 3 beads from the 45 count pile and you slide then onto 1 piece of ribbon until it is at the top.


Step 11::
Then take the other piece of ribbon that doesn't have the beads and you put it through all the beads 1 by one to make it easier, after you pull both ends to knot it.


Step 12::
Now take 4 beads from the 45 count pile and slide them all the way up on 1 piece of string.


Step 13::
Next take the other piece of ribbon and slide it also through the beads 1 by 1, and after pull both ends of the ribbon to knot it.




Now bring back the 2 different colored beads.

Step 14:
Now take one of the different colored beads (white) and slide it onto 1 piece of ribbon. Then you put 1 bead from the 45 count pile onto the same ribbon and slide it up also. And finally slide the other different colored bead onto the same ribbon so the blue bead (or any color) is in the middle.


Step 15:
Next take the other ribbon that doesn't have the beads and slide it through 1 by 1, then pull both ends so it is knotted well.



Step 16:
Now take the last of the 45 count pile (which should be 2 more beads) and slide them all the way up to the top.


Step 17:
Then slide the other ribbon into the beads 1 by 1. And now pull both ends so the beads are knotted into place.


Now you tie a knot around the tip of the end beads so the beads will stay in place, and Super Glue the knot so it could stay in place.




[u] If it doesn't look good to you, you could always tuck in the knot under the bead by adjusting the string or do the whole snake backwards and start from the nose. [/u]
