- Ornament hangers
- Fishing line
- Scissors & wire cutters
- Remove the label from the top and/or bottom of the thread spool.
- Create a dangle of beads (I cut apart a portion of the necklace) Using beads, eye pins etc.
- Thread a 10″ length of fishing line through the eye pin at the top of your dangle. Insert both ends of fishing line up through the thread spool.
- Insert fishing line through a large bead at the top of the spool.
