This beginner technique uses just two products plus whatever beads or charms you want to string together!
Have some Hypo Tube Cement on hand to finish the knot.
You will need to cut with Beading Scissors 1-1/4 in. Blade or any scissors you have close by.
Cut the Stretch Magic to about 12 inches. Begin stringing your beads onto the elastic.
After you have strung your last bead, cross the right end of the elastic over the left end.
Wrap the right end behind and around the left end, beginning to form a square knot. Pull the ends so the knot is close to the beads.
Cross the left end of the elastic over the the right end.
Wrap the left end behind and around the right end, completing the square knot.
Pull the Stretch Magic tight.
Once the knot is tight, carefully cut off the excess Stretch Magic.
Apply a drop of Hypo Tube Cement to the knot and let dry completely to secure the knot.
