Use a half hitch to secure the middle of the cord to the lanyard.
Add the beads. Start with the soccer ball at the top. Hold the bead so that the holes are on the left and right.
Lace the bead by going in the left side with one end of the lace and the right side with the other.
Now add the next bead, starting to spell the name. The end which came out on the left side of the previous bead goes in the left side of the next bead. The end which came out of the right goes in on the right.
Continue adding beads in this manner, spelling out your name and adding your team colors.
After the last bead, tie it off with a knot and trim the ends
Sometimes I put a little dot of hot glue at the knot to make sure it holds.
