Materials:

3  yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
90 black pony beads
11 orange pony beads
10 neon green pony beads
10 goldenrod pony beads
4 rust pony beads


Special Instructions:  Pay close attention to the string path when making the 3-D hat.  After completing the first two rows, on one strand, string on 8 black pony beads.  Using only the other strand, go back through 6 of the beads.  Add on 6 more beads and weave back through forming the tip of the hat.  Complete the row by going through the previous 4 beads of the third row plus the remaining two beads.  You should end up with a strand on each side.  Continue with the pattern.  Also, pay close attention to the string path around the legs and the broom.  Complete the last row of the dress before making the legs/feet.  Make the legs and the feet and weave through 5 of the black beads of the dress bottom.  Do the same for the other leg.  Then make the broom stick.  Note that the broom bristles are made using one strand.  When completed, tie knots where indicated and add a drop of glue to the knots to secure.
