Easy enough for even the most craft-challenged, this cute little beaded snake takes a minimum of materials for a maximum of charm.
Start by stringing a pony bead onto the pipe cleaner. Push it to the bottom, then loop the pipe cleaner around the bead and twist the pipe cleaner around itself to hold the bead on the end.
Continue stringing beads until you only have 1/2″ left.
Loop the pipe cleaner around the last bead and twist the pipe cleaner around itself to hold the bead, then push the rest of the beads around to cover the pipe cleaner twist.
Starting at the top, make a head by rolling the pipe cleaner like a snail. Use either hot glue or twist the pipe cleaner around the snake’s body to hold the head there.
Add wiggle eyes with glue.
Snip off a 1″ piece of red pipe cleaner. Twist it around the front of the head to make a tongue.
