Introduction: DIY Beaded Lizard

This is a tutorial on how to make a beaded lizard charm. This can be a toy, an fun decoration, or a cute gift!
I will be showing the pattern for a baby lizard, but I will soon make one for an adult lizard

Step 1: Gather Materials

Pony beads
Gimp
Keychain

Step 2: Lay Out Pattern

Arrange your beads as shown in the second picture

Step 3: Gimp

Thread the keychain onto the gimp, and tie it into the center

Step 4: Start Lacing on the Beads

Row by row add on the beads as shown in picture 4-to make the legs, put 2 beads on one string, loop it around the farthest bead from the body, then thread It through the other bead

Step 5: Tie It Off

After you finish beading it, just tie off the strands, cut the excess, and you're done,



HAPPY CRAFTING :D

I am VERY impressed that you used the word gimp. I had to look it up on Google! I love making these kind of bead creatures and am glad you laid out the pattern in advance. I do hope you post more instructables of your work with some better lighting conditions. Thank you for sharing!
