Carefully drill a hole through each cork, lengthwise.

Figure 1

Put a crimp bead and one half of the clasp set on one end of the beading wire.

Run the end of the wire back through the crimp bead, then use the crimper or needle nose pliers to crimp the bead around the wire end.

String beads on for about 4.5 inches (11.43 cm). 

Figure 2

Feed the opposite end of the wire through the doll needle and feed it through one of the corks, wiggling a bit to get the needle through the hole at the other end.

Figure 3

String another 2 inches (5.08 cm) of beads, then use the doll needle to place another cork.

Figure 4

Repeat the above step one more time.

String another 4.5 inch (11.43 cm) of beads, then add the final crimp bead and the other half of the clasp set.

Thread the end of the beading wire back through the crimp bead and use the crimper or needle nose pliers to crimp the bead around the wire.

Use the wire cutters to cut off the extra wire, as close as to the crimp bead as possible.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licenses to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterward. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store. 

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
