You can use strings of beads left over from Mardi Gras or parties to make a dog.

1. First count off five beads. Make a loop out of the five beads and twist the string aroung twice just after the fifth bead to make the head.

2. Then skip one bead. Make a loop out of the next four beads and twist them together twice after the fourth bead to make the front legs.

3. Skip a couple of beads to make the dog’s body. Then to make the hind legs, do the same as Step 2 again.

4. For the last step, cut the string where you want the tail to end. Enjoy your new bead dog!
