Measure and cut out your cord, string, wire, or ribbon. (25 inches)
Fold the string in half
Then tie a knot so you end up with this loop. You may want to make your loop bigger if your not using key rings.
If you have a key ring, attach the loop into the ring.
This is the gecko design. You do not have to use the same colour. Pick your colours and place them in this shape/design. But defiantly have black for the eyes.
You will be doing this layer by layer. First slide your 1st layer/level aside.
Put that layer on one of the strings
Now slip the other string through, also.
Pull on both the strings, moving upwards. You should have this
Slide aside another layer.
Do the same method. Put that layer on one of the strings, slip the other string through, then pull up. Now you should have this.
Same method. Pull up, and you should have this.
Now grab the leg on the left.
Pull the string through them.
Here is a video. In this, you are only working with one string.
Pull on the string and push the beads upward.
Grab the right leg and do the same process but the opposite way.
Pull up and here is the product so far.
String on the rest of the beads/body with the same method as step 7-14.
If you have done it right so far, you should have a tail and 2 legs left.
The same process as the upper legs. Make sure that which ever leg and string you have (left or right) is looped in the right direction.
Same goes the other leg.
For the tail, you are doing the same process as the body and head but one bead at a time.
This is the product with the tail.
Now tie a knot like this.
Do it a couple times then cut off the extra string. If you can't glue the knot right now (like me) cut leaving a bit of excess to be safe.
Here is your mini gecko! So cute! Ready to be clipped onto your zippers,key chains,etc.
