Now that you have your braided section, you can start adding your decorations. Thee are probably a million ways you could do this, but here are a few that I did:

Method 1:
Hold the end of the braid with your thumb and forefinger. Hold the cord in a way so that you are about to bring the farthest strand to the right, into the middle. Now, find the end of the cord and push your bead onto the end, pulling it up until it's nestled against the other pieces of cord. Bring the cord with a bead on it to the center of the braid, and before you pull in the cord from the left, put a bead on that. repeat, putting beads onto the outermost cords as you braid. Continue for as long as you like.

Method 2:
Follow the method above, only do this solely on one side. Continue for as long as you like.

Method 3:
Follow Method 2, except braid the cord without beads on it in between sections of beaded braid, like in the picture.
