Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut bungee cord as follows: 15" of black, 16" of gray and 18" of pink.

Step 2 Overlap 1" of the end of the black bungee cord with one end of the pink and gray ends (lined up evenly). The rest of the black bungee cord should lie in one direction (to wrap around the neck) while the pink and gray lie the other direction (to wrap around the front of the neck). Glue ends side-by-side. Let dry.

Step 3 Wrap twine around ends to completely cover the 1" overlapping of bungee cords. Use glue to secure. Let dry.

Step 4 Thread several silver x-large jump rings and push them near the 1" overlapping of cords.

Step 5 Keeping the pink and gray aligned evenly, tie a knot approximately 4-1/2" to 5" from the 1" overlap of bungee cord. “Trap” silver jump rings between the knot and the 1" overlap.

Step 6 Tie a second knot 3" of gray bungee cord and 5" pink bungee cord from first knot. Pink will hang lower than gray.

Step 7 Thread the same amount of silver x-large jump rings as in Step 4 and push them near the second knot.

Step 8 Repeat Steps 2-3 for the other side. Trim pink or gray cords if uneven.

Step 9 Wrap twine around the center of the pink bungee cord as desired.

Step 10 Add pendant over twine in Step 9.
