1. Find the halfway point of the cord and double-knot it onto the key ring.
2. Begin weaving the beads onto the cord, following the pattern.
3. After finishing the pattern, tie a double knot in the cord. Apply a dot of craft glue to each knot to secure them.
4. Three or four beads can be strung onto the end of the cord as a finishing touch (optional).
Seed beads or E-beads can be used in place of pony beads to create smaller characters.
