Instructions 

1. Take your two pipe cleaners, cut them in half at the middle point to give you four shorter lengths ( photo 1 )

3. Thread one 8mm bead into one leg, and position it approx 1cm from the end ( photo 3 )
4. Fold over the end of the pipe cleaner. Twist this end around the leg to secure the bead, wind the end of the pipe cleaner leg tightly so the pointy end is tucked away( photo 5 )
