Thread the leather through the key ring and bring it to the center. There is a back side and front side of the leather. The back side has a little more texture than the front. Try to keep the front side up while going through the steps.

Thread the wood beads one at a time. We strung our small first, big second and then another small.

Push the beads all the way up to the key ring.

Now we want to tie an overhand knot to keep the beads from coming off the cord. Make a loop with the leather cord right under the last bead.

Thread the ends of the cord back trough the loop and tighten. Try to keep the knot as close to the last bead as possible.
