    To add the beads, you will definitely need to use a needle and thread to run two bands through the beads.

    Run needle and thread through the bead. Pick up two stretch bands and insert needle back through the hole of the disc. Pull on the two ends of the thread to pull the stretch bands through the loop. Remove needle and thread. Repeat for all beads.
  • 8
    Add on the beads by placing crochet hook through a loop on one of the sides of the bead, repeating this process noted in steps 1-4.
  • 9
    Depending on how far apart you want the beads, continue to add bands and beads, just making sure they are evenly spaced.
  • 10
    Finish bracelet off with a stretch band clip or making a bead a toggle closure by placing other loop on the bead over on itself to lock it in place. Add loop from other end of bracelet over the bead to complete.
