Thread 5 beads onto a skewer and paint them blue: Take a wooden skewer (or stick) and thread five wooden beads on it. Take your paintbrush and paint the beads blue, then suspend the skewer on top of a bowl and allow them to dry.
Paint seven beads terracotta red: Using the same technique as before, take another seven wooden beads, thread them onto a skewer and paint them, this time using the terrace red acrylic paint. Set them aside and allow them to dry.
Cut five pieces of macrame yarn: Measure and cut five pieces of macrame yarn and fold each one in half. When folded in half they should be slightly longer than you want each strand of beads to be when attached to the loop.
Tie the yarn onto the loop: Take the yarn pieces you’re prepared and tie them around the loop using a simple knot. Line them up along the bottom section of the loop and let them dangle making sure the strands don’t get tangled up.
Combine all the beads in a bowl: By now all the paint should be dry and you can take the beads off the skewers and combine them all in a small bowl or container or just put them in a small pile on your work surface.
Thread the yarn through the needle two strands at a time, then add the beads: Using the needle threader, thread the yarn through the needle two strands at a time as they’re arranged along the loop. This can be quite tricky so take your time and be patient about it.
