Our chic, grown-up versions are just as fun, but with one extra benefit—you don't have to sleep, shower, or swim in them, thanks to a crimp bead that makes sliding them on and off a cinch. Our secret to stringing these beauties without a headache or hand cramp? A flexible wire needle that slips right through the tiny beads.

Step 3

Add crimp bead. Remove needle and tape, and thread needle onto other end of floss; pull it through crimp bead. (At this point, the beads should form a loop, and the loose ends of floss should stick out from the crimp bead.)
