  2. Use a wooden dowel, if needed, to assist in painting the entire area of the bead. Let dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Thread the beads with jute.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Make jute tassels and tie to the ends.
    Step 3 Example


While the beads are drying, it's helpful to have something to gather them in to keep them from rolling away. I used the lid of a plastic ice cream bucket.

If you are having trouble threading the beads on the string, grab a piece of Scotch tape and wrap the ends of the string to create a stiff end.
