108 red beads (size 6x9mm)
2 ½" wooden or 3" yellow foam star

2. Do rows 2,3,and 4 the same way as the first row tying each strand to a notch.

3. Row 5 has a star on it. Add 5 beads to the string. Then thread the star on. Now add 6 more beads. Tie this strand to the middle of the stick.

4. Finish rows 6 through 9 and tie off. A drop of glue will secure the knots. Trim excess string.

5. Tie a string on the end notches to create a hanger.
