Attach a 40cm piece of macramé cord onto a clip board and thread beads onto the cord.

2.
Cut a piece of macramé cord measuring approx. 150cm and double it over. Start braiding around the cord attached to the clip board by placing the 150cm long cord with 75cm on either side. Start approx. 10cm from the top of the clip board. Make approx. 3 braiding knots.

Cut off the two cord ends used for braiding and secure them by melting them. Melt one end at a time and immediately push it into the braiding with a pair of scissors or the pointed end of the lighter so they melt together.

Place the two ends parallel and braid around these with a new approx. 30cm piece of cord over the two middle cords. Finish by cutting off the ends and melting them following the same procedure as described above.
