    Start stringing the beads onto the wire. String both wires through one big bead then separate the wires and string smaller beads onto each wire while still separated.

    After a few of the small beads bring the wires back together then string another big bead (with both wires together). Then repeat until you get the headband to the length that you want it to be.
