How to Make

  1. Cut a 20cm long piece of white elastic and thread nine purple flower beads onto it.
  2. Thread a split metal ring onto the elastic and then tie tightly into a loop using three or four knots.
  3. Cut another 20cm piece of elastic and thread through the purple flower loop. Thread nine orange flower beads onto it.
  4. Tie the elastic tightly to make a loop of orange beads. You are now making a pretty chain!
  5. Continue making a chain of loops in this way using the same number of different coloured beads each time.
  6. Once the chain is seven loops long check all the knots are really tight. Trim the ends of the elastic and put a dab of PVA Glue onto each knot to ensure they don't come undone.
