Haven't got any ideas how to use wooden pearls but I'd really like to make something of them. Got a pic of them here Wooden Pearls
The pearls are in different colours and size. Would like to make something other than just a neckless (that came first to my mind). Any ideas?

The large ones can be used as little doll heads.

How about creating making a bead door? or one of those special bead seat cushions like this : http://www.amazon.com/Comfort-Bead-Wood-Beaded-Cushion/dp/B000EEU0IO

or if they're not big enough, how about glueing or stringing them together to create a pretty trivet and napkin holders? Lots of possibilities there.

I think they would be a good base to make ornaments with - string together, and add wire to make armatures, and paint to make little mini dolls, animals, snowmen, could be a good base to make snowflakes for winter.  I wonder how many you have, and how big they are.  Could come together to make an interesting wreath too.

How about covering tin cans with these wooden pearls? Smiley

Here's what I did with mine:

just some hot glue gun, varnish and poster paint Wink and of course a lot of patience!
