Children's Crafts - Beaded Sea Creatures from www.walkaboutcrafts.com

You will need:
Coloured beads about 6mm wide
Narrow wire, such as florists wire
Tape measure
Scissors

1. Use the scissors to cut a piece of wire about 6ft to thread up the fish. For the sea horse you need a piece of wire 4ft long.

2. Start by threading six green beads onto the middle of the wire.

3. Bend one end of the wire, then thread six orange beads onto it. Thread the other end of the wire through the beads.

4. Thread four green beads onto the wire. Thread the other end of the wire through beads again.

5. Continue threading beads, using the fish diagram as a guide. Bend the wire as you go, to give the fish its shape.

6. When you reach rows with fins, add on extra beads as shown. At the end of each fin, thread the last bead, pass the wire over it then down through the next bead.

7. To finish, twist the two ends of the wire together several times. Then trim the wire, leaving a length of about 1.5cm. To neaten, bend the twisted end back into the last bead.
