Continue to pass the thread through the tape from the back to the front to attach acrylic and glass beads in a random pattern to the center 4-1/2 inches on the front of the tape. Attach the tape to the length of the bracelet as you attach the beads to the front. Tie the tail of the thread around the insert thread after the last bead using two overhand knots to secure the thread in place.
