How to make a Mushroom with Beads

This reminds me of a Super Mario Brothers mushroom. It's very important that you restring all the beads otherwise it'll be too soft at the top to hold up the shape.

30 - 4mm bicone beads (green)
size 11 seed beads (transparent)
size 9 seed beads (white)
90cm fishing line
1 - 2" head pin
1 - 4mm fire polished bead (white)
Round Nose Pilers
Wire cutter

How to Make a Little Bear Head

I used 3mm bicone beads for this bear. It turns out very tiny - about 1cm x 1.5cm. Good size for a charm or cell phone attachment. I'm trying to figure out how to add a body to the head . . .

40 - 3mm bicone beads (brown)
3 - 3mm bicone beads (black)
