Ok, so I was at the dollar store the other day and they had a bag of like 20 or 30 wooden chopsticks.  They aren't the cheap pull apart kind you get with your take out. They're more like the plastic ones you get in a sit down restaurant, but made of wood.  They even have some Chinese characters printed on one side.

So any suggestions other than knitting needles (don't need 10 identical pairs) or purse handles?

they make good carriers for mobiles...spines for notebooks...you can put them together in a herringbone pattern and make a nice boxtop decoration...

Hair "sticks" !!   They are perfect for that...plain or decorated.  We have wrapped colored wire around the ends then dangled beads or charms from them. My girls use lots of hair sticks and some of their fav's are swizzle sticks form the dollar store. They come in lots of fun colors and shapes (on the ends).  

I love the idea of using them to create a pattern on top of a box!  We always have a supply from our local asian restaurants....i'm thinking it's time to use them a new way Smiley thanks !

I have used a chop stick to stuff arms, legs, heads with fiberfill..whatever I am working on. They are just the right size to stuff those little places that your fingers can't reach. Also the rounded end keeps your project safe from being punctured.

I have used them to eat Japanese food.  And to catch flies.  Ok, well, never successfully on the flies part...

Use them as tiny curtain rods?  Use them with young plants as a prop of sorts.  (I know there is an actual gardening term for this, but so help me, I can't think of it.)

Goddess, how do you make dollhouses out of chopsticks? Log cabin style? As frames for shoji screens?

Jesus loves me, this I know.
