2. To create the snake tail, feed a few beads through the end of the stem, hook the last two inches, then go around the last bead and feed the stem through the beads. This secures the end and prevents the beads from falling out.
Allow some small spacing between the beads in the snake body, so it can wrap nicely when wrapping around the wrist to make a snake bracelet. Create a small loop with the head and twist.
5. To fill in the snake head, fill in the remaining stem with some beads. Bring the remaining end through the center of the head, twist the stem around the front head of the snake, and add two more beads for the tongue. Lastly, have the last bit of stem wrap around the last bead, and feed the stem through the previous bead to secure the end. Essentially, repeating what you did for the other end of the snake.
The girls liked this craft so much they made two each! And now each wrist is adorned with a snake bracelet. Their snakes even have names! I believe one is Lavender Chai and another Blue River. I’m not sure what the other two are!
