How To Tie Your Waist Beads

When tying your waist beads, these steps will apply differently to every person because it depends on

  1. How loose you want your waist bead to hang around your waist.
  2. If the waist bead is staying on our waist permanently or temporarily.
  3. The type of waist bead you’re using.
  4. How many waist beads you are using.
  5. How many times you want the beads to go around your waist.

Steps to Tying Your Waist Bead

Step 1: Unwrap your waist beads.

Step 2: Join as many waist beads as you want to wrap around you. The amount of waist beads you join depends in how many times you want the bead to go round your waist or the volume you want round your waist.

Step 3: Place the joined waist beads round your waist to the point where you find suitable.

Step 4: wrap the waist beads around your waist as many times as you want.

Step 5: Get the tightness you desire and hold the end of the waist bead where you want it tied.

Step 6: If the remaining bead is long enough, see if you can detach one of the waist beads or go round one extra time.

Step 7: If it is too loose, you can cut off the end and remove the extra beads.

Step 8: Tie the string or rope as tight as you want depending on how permanently you want the waist beads on.

Step 9: Another tying option would be to use a clasp to hold the waist bead ends together. This method is more permanent but the waist bead can be removed if it is not so tight around your waist.

Step 10: Cut off any excess string and your waist bead is well tied. 5 knots is recommended.

Note: Permanent doesn't mean that the waist bead is irremovable.
