Take two pipe cleaners and make an “X”. Twist them around each other in the middle.
Take two more pipe cleaners and wrap them around the middle the same way.
Now insert the beads into pipe cleaners in your pattern. Leaving a couple inches at the end of each pipe cleaner.
Bring all of the ends together. Take one of the pipe ends and wrap it around the others.
Wrap another piece of pipe cleaner around the stem if it’s not secure enough, and you are done!
