These are large paper rainbow beads that I made and worked on yesterday and the day before on and off, I still have more to make.  I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for what to use them for other than a necklace, bracelet or monster earrings?
Here is a link to some other ones I made with a short tutorial on how to make them.  For these I just added more paper and used a pen for the center, thats why they are so big.

Glue them to the end of a dowel and use as a hair chopstick, or somehow put a pin back on one to make a brooch.

Those are cool!  What about keychains?  Perhaps combined with a few beads or other components? 
Or, you could use them for zipper pulls on a purse. 
Wine glass charms for a party?
Depending on your furniture they could be put on drawers for a decorative touch on a side table or dresser.

Ummm, that's all I got so far.  I gotta try paper beads, I keep looking at them and loving them... gotta try 'em.  Smiley

Thanks for the ideas.  I never would have thought of key chains, good idea.  Also the decorative side would be interesting too in a clear glass bowl or something like that.

They are a little addictive once you start making them lol.

These are so bright and cheery!  You could string 'em up and make a windchime?  or just a cheerful dangle for the kitchen or bathroom!

These are BEAUTIFUL!
how did you make these? did you just make paper beads and paint them?
and if you make dreamcatchers, those could look really neat on a dream catcher...

I just saw your tutorial... thank you, this is such a neat idea.  How 'bout pencil-toppers?

i was thinking mobiles, and that's pretty much been suggested.  what about using them to decorate the end of fan pulls or curtain strings?
