Let's Get Started
String about 4 inches of red pony beads onto a pipe cleaner. Repeat 9 more times.
Twist pipe cleaner to close off the tops and the bottoms and manipulate to form an apple shape.
String about 5 inches of green pony beads on to a pipe cleaner to create a stem.
Fold a 10 inch piece of Rexlace in half.
After you cut the Rexlace, fold in half, put both ends through the ring.
Pull the cording until the middle of the string is near the ring.
Next, put the ends of the cording through the loop, pull through and tighten it.
Thread both ends of the cording through beads. Be sure that the beads have holes that are big enough for two strands of cording.
Tie a double knot at the end to secure the beads. Then trim the extra string off.
