Step 1: Gather supplies:
- Detergent lid
- Nylon or other type sturdy string (about 20 inches)
- Hollow ball that fits inside detergent lid (these came from the pet section of Walmart)
- Super Glue
- Sharp knife
- Ice pick
- Metal washer
- Sheet of paper
Step 2: Heat the tip of the ice pick, and carefully pierce a hole in the center of the lid. Enlarge the hole by forcing the ice pick close to the handle.
Step 3: Twist one end of the string and force through the outside of the hole then pull through and tie a double knot.
Step 4: Tie the other end of the string to the washer and secure with a double knot.
Step 5: Place both knots on the paper. Soak with Super Glue and allow to dry thoroughly.
Step 6: Using a sharp knife, pierce a slit in the ball a little smaller than the width of the metal washer. If you make it too wide, the washer will pull out.
Step 7: Once the knot is entirely dry, press the washer through the slit followed by the knot.
Step 8: Pull the knot on the other end flush with the inside of the lid and there you have it!
