Drill small holes in the tops of your GoGo squeeZ caps, total of 8 in different colors (blue, green and black). If you don’t have a drill, carefully use a scissor to poke holes through the center of the caps.
Lay out the length of the twine and placement of the caps to create your design. (TIP: Wrap tape around the ends of your twine to string the beads easier like a shoelace)
Start stringing beads onto the twine, and carefully add the caps in per your design. Leave space on the top and bottom of the twine.
String 5 strands with the middle strand being the longest and each one to the side slightly shorter to create a “V”.
Wrap the top of each string around the piece of wood in order and tie them in a knot.
Create a tassel for the ends of the string by looping the string 10 times around your hand, tying the end of the beaded twine around the middle of the looped string. Then fold the tassel string in half around the knot and with another piece of string wrap around the top to create your tassel. Finish with a knot.
Wrap different colored strings on the end of the wooden stick to add some fun and color!
Choose which string you want to be the hanging string and wrap several times around the wood stick leaving about 12 inches at the top. Repeat on the other side. Tie both ends together at the top to create a loop.
