Chunky jewelry (painted and used as large beads)

baby mobiles

parts of windchimes

set into birdbaths/stepping stones/planters around the edges as decoration

if you have enough (and it takes LOTS) do a "beaded" curtain out of them

paint and string up as christmas tree decorations

We're on craftster because we love to create. Why should we settle for what we currently are?

I've wanted to use them as bases for hand carved rubber stamps.

They'd make nice "pots" for wired trees or wire photo displays.

store ribbon/thread/yarn pieces

thread some together into a back massager

once did a lesson on native american heritage and then made totem poles

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

These would make great gifts for toddlers along with a shoelace.  They can practice beading - good for fine motor skills.  If you can't find anything to do with them (and you still have them) I would imagine a good preschool in your area would love them!  (A good preschool should have a recycle area where parents bring stuff like that and kids can build with it.)

Progress not perfection.

If any are foam, you can make little animals out of beads and pins. My sister made me one and they're adorable! You'd use the pins for feet and a tail, probably.
