Step 4: Once you have them centered, spray each slip knot in place with a small spray of adhesive. Protect you surface from overspray. Make sure to give the top and then the bottom a slight dusting.

Step 5: Start putting on your beads. Repeat the same pattern on each strand.

Step 6: Add a few decorative touches. Buttons work well for this. Charms would work also.

Step 7: Tie the bells on the end of your strands.

Step 8: Tie single cords to the center of your frame. These cords should be about 6 to 10-inches longer than your finished strands. The extra length will give you room to work with them. Leave about 6 inches of the strand at the top for the hanger. (Please note in the picture below that I did not leave the extra 6 inches at the top. Since I discovered this would be useful information after I had already cut them, I added that information for you.)  The longer four single cords will end up being your 5th strand.
