    Finish the bracelet with a tight knot and tie another knot in each of the two ends approx. 1 cm from the previous knot. Thread a bead onto each end, tie a knot and trim the excess cord.

    A TIP!
    Apply a small blob of glue to the end of the cord and leave to dry. This makes threading the beads onto the cord easier.
