designed by Evelyn McDermand

3 yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
72 neon blue pony beads
39 tan pony beads
14 gray pony beads
2 white pony beads
1 black pony bead
2 pearl white mini
1-5 inch piece of black chenille stem
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.

Special Instructions: Trim off the “fuzz” from the chenille stem. Use the diagram below to shape the stem to resemble glasses. Insert ends into the side beads (as shown) and glue in place.
