This is a fun craft and when you get the hang of it, it gets easier so don't be worried if you don't get it right on the first time because all you have to do is keep trying.

Step 1: The Things You Will Need

Picture of The Things You Will Need

53 beads in all, 20 of the beads one color then the rest of the beads a different color, tape and string and one of the pictures will show you how munch string and also one of a split ring or a lanyard hook and hard surface.

Step 2: How Long Your String Should Be

Your string should be from your finger to shoulder and make sure two double it and your arm should be straight when doing It also you should knot the top of string where it folds tape your string to a hard surface so that it does not move on you ( look in pics)

Step 3: The Layout of Lizard

Lay out the beads like the design in the picture. Look very closely you do not want to mess it up.

Step 4: How to Put the First Few Things on String

Put the nose ( just one bead) on one pieces of string then put the other piece of string through the opposite way then pull both sides. Then put the next two on string the same way then put the two eyes and the middle part and do that the same way but make sure both of the eye beads on the outsides ( do that until you come to the legs and arms)

Step 5: The Top Legs

The legs are a little bit tricky to do so put on one side of the string all six beads for the legs, then skip the three different color bead that you want for the claw part and put the string in the other three then pull ( look in pics then do that with the other top leg only the other string)

Step 6: The Stomach

Repeat Step 5 for bottom legs.

Step 8: Finishing Tail

Finishing off the tail is mostly like making the nose. One at a time for six beads. Then you tie a knot with the remaining string and cut of any extra string. Not too short in case the knot comes out and you have to retie.

Step 9: Adding Lanyard Hook or Split Ring
