You start by cutting a small piece of elastic and put a knot in it so the beads you are going to thread on it won't fall off on the other side. Then thread the beads onto the elastic and tie a knot in it, put a drop of jewelry glue on the knot and let it dry for a while. Finally you cut off the remaining thread and work the knot neatly away. As explained in the video below.
