Next, select the beads you want to use. Don't these look happy? I love the fresh look of turquoise and greens!
Next, tie a loose square knot at the end of your cord. You may even choose not to cut your cord until you are finished.
Start stringing your beads leaving the weight of them on a flat surface in case the knot gives way.
Especially if you decided not to cut the cording yet, measure as you go keaving a good inch or more at the ends.
At the end you want to tie the cording like you would a water balloon. This is the only knot that will stay secure! Trust me, I've tried. Even with glue other knots don't hold.
No glue is necessary. In fact, I don't recommend it because some glues cause the cord to become brittle and break with wear.
