Line up 11 to 12 jelly beans in the pattern you like.

String on jelly beans one at a time. If your fingers are not strong you might need to tap the needle into the jelly bean and pull the needle through with the pinch nose plyers. The needle will get sticky, but don’t bother to wipe off. It will help you hold onto it.

Once you have all your jelly beans strung on the floss tie ends together, knot and then snip of remaining floss.
