 Huh What can I make out of plastic BB's? (They're small little balls of plastic used in airsoft guns)

Basically, my friend Andrew spilt a bunch at my house, and once they're dirty you can't use them so I've got a bunch of white plastic balls I'd like to be crafty with. I'd make a really neat bead necklace, but I wouldn't know how to drill holes in it. (They're not hollow) And I dunno how to wire wrap either. Any other ideas? Or tips?

instead of drilling a hole hold a needle with some pliers and put it in a flame then while its still hot poke it through the plastic thing.

to wire wrap really simply you could just thread it onto wire then put the wire back through the whole and you can do that as many times as you want. if it make sno sense then just ask again and i will re-explain

Or may be you could use them to make a crafty poster. sticking them around in patterns is not all that hard a job. Frame it and get it on your living room wall. Smiley

Okay, these little things are really small, right? I would not want to be the one trying to drill or melt holes in them! Unless you have a LOT of time on your hands.

How about using them in resin? If you like them a lot, you can get other colors!

I had some clear red plastic BBs myself that my brother had given me. I put them in a tiny bottle with some mineral oil and called them "Leviathan Eggs"--See here:

I bought another bottle at a craft store (one of the ones that is rounded and looks like a potion bottle) and filled it with the BBs too. I just leave it on the shelf with some other bottles filled with things and it makes a nice display.

Oh! If yours are white, they would probably look good in a clear vase, with some fake flowers in it. And of course, you can always glue them to things or embed them into things. They would probably be useful in one of those "Tiny things" type of crafts that everyone around here seems to be doing lately.
