Thread the beads onto one end of the hat elastic while holding the opposite end so as not to loose the beads. I used 13 beads. Depending on your wrist size you may want more or less.

When you are happy with amount of beads you have tie a knot in the ends of the hat elastic to secure.

Finish the ends of the ribbon by folding the ends in half and cutting from the bottom outer edge diagonally to the centre of the ribbon to make a fork in the ribbon.

Stop the ribbon from fraying by painting a small amount of clear nail polish on the ends of the ribbon.

Allow the nail polish to dry and you are good to go!
