3 Things You Can Do With Wholesale Beads


If your hobby includes making beaded jewelry, there are times when you may be left with a lot of beads and no idea on what to do with them next. This happens with me most of the time. I absolutely love making jewelry and whenever there is a huge sale on wholesale beads, I buy them without thinking how actually I am going to include all of them in my jewelry creations. What happens is that when I create jewelry, I use the most suitable beads that fit my design ideas. Since I have purchased wholesale beads which are usually mixed lots, I am left with a lot of beads that I cannot use in my creation. They either don't fit my designs or they are defective in one way or the other or I simply don't want to include them in my jewelry designs.

But, this doesn't mean that I throw these precious little decorations away. I use them in the creation of other beautiful things. So if you buy wholesale beads for your jewelry creations and don't use all of them, here are 3 things that you can do with your wholesale beads so that they don't go wasted.

Beaded curtains

You can liven up any space with the use of beautiful and colorful beads. Beaded curtains are easy to make, and you can use different kinds and colors of beads to give your space an exciting appeal. Beaded curtains are suitable for creating a partition between two different areas such as the kitchen and the living room. If you don't have a door in between to separate the two areas, you can very well create your own beaded curtain and use it as a divider.

Melted bead suncatcher

One of the most exciting things that you can make from your plastic beads is a melted bead suncatcher. It is very easy and takes only about 30 minutes. To make a melted bead suncatcher, you have to melt beads in a metal baking dish. Arrange the beads in a single layer onto the dish and bake for about 10 minutes. You could use a gas grill and bake them outside if you are worried about the smell of melting plastic. Once they are baked and cooled, it is easy to take them off. You don't have to worry about your baking dish because once the melted beads have cooled down, it will come out easily without even leaving behind any residues. Using a drill, you can make holes in the suncatcher and hang them outside and let them catch the morning sunlight.

Funky faux chandelier

Using a long strand of wire or thread, you can string all the beads together. Then, you can use an embroidery hoop, a bike rim or a planter basket as the frame of the chandelier. You can give the materials any color of your choice by spray painting them. Create an elegant curve under the frame with a strand of beads. Secure both the sides by tying knots. Run more strands to make more curves. Continue until your creation resembles a funky no-light chandelier. Use a chain to hang your chandelier from the porch, tree or even in the house.
