Remove one of the skeins of thread from the package, but make sure to keep the shape. Cut a small piece of thread from the end of the thread, about 5 inches long.
Insert one end through the split ring and fold it in half. Tie the small piece of thread around the top of the thread.
Cut the ends to create a tassel. You can leave the ends long, or trim them up a bit to make a shorter tassel.
Using the Sharpie Paint Markers, paint the beads. String the beads onto a piece of the remaining skein of thread.
Halfway through, add the tassel onto the necklace. When you’re finished stringing the beads, tie off the end of the necklace. You could also use a jewelry closure to ensure that it remains closed.
