Materials:

3 yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
70 red pony beads
30 tan pony beads
14 gray pony beads
12 yellow pony beads
2 white pony beads
1 black pony bead
2 pearl white mini
Black sharpie marker or craft paint for eyes

Note: You can use 1 regular size white or pearl white pony bead in place of the two mini. However, the two mini look better, to resemble the teeth.
Also, if using ribbon, you may need to reinforce the bottom row to keep it from separating.
