How To:

1. Depending on the size of the bead, cut a length of monofilment cord from 24”-36”.

2. Thread the cord through a wood bead, leaving a 1” tail. Then bring the cord back down through the bead.

3. Bring the cord through the loop at the side of the bead from back to front. Cross the cord over itself and through the loop just created. Pull the cord snug against the bead and tighten. This creates a knot. Use a dot of glue to secure the knot. Trim the tail end.

4. Bring the long end of the cord (coming down out of the bead) up against the wood bead. Add seed beads to the cord until you reach the hole. Bring the cord down through the hole and keep it snug.

Repeat this step until the wood bead is covered in stripes of seed beads.

*The inspiration samples shown use a variety of seed bead colors. Try Incorporating golds, clear, yellows and greens to mimic the colors of a gourd.

5. After the wood bead is covered in seed bead stripes, continue wrapping the cord around the wood bead a few more times to keep the cord secure. Then tie the cord into a knot at the bottom of the wood bead. Trim the excess cord. Use a dot of glue to secure the knot.

6. Make a wire coil using the round pliers and a 1-2” wire.

7. Thread a head pin with an e-bead. Bring the head pin up through the wood bead. Thread the wire coil onto the head pin and thread on (2) e-beads. Form a wrapped loop.

*Use e-beads or seed beads to create the stem of the pumpkin bead.
