Put a long piece of string onto a needle and pull both ends to the same length. Add small beads to make your snake tongue and knot cord at the end.

Begin to add your cardboard discs and bottle tops. Add a small bead in-between each cardboard disc and a wooden bead after each bottle top. This helps your snake to be wiggly!

Continue to the end gradually reducing the discs in size to make the tail. Stick on googly eyes! I also tied on 2 strings to the snakes body to make him into a puppet.
