Purchasing Some Wholesale Beads? 4 Things You Can Use Them For

Home & Garden Blog

Wholesale beads can be used in a variety of ways. If you are ordering some beads, you can be very creative in how you use them from decorating clothing to using them outside. Below are four things to help you get started.

Embellish A Jacket

If you have a boring jacket, using wholesale beads can really dress it up and make it stand out. When you get it finished, it will look like a totally different jacket. Lay the jacket out and determine how you want to put the beads on it. You could put them in straight lines, cluster them together, or even create a design using them, such as a heart or a star. Once you decide this, secure the beads with a needle and thread. Consider tying a knot behind each bead to keep them more securely on the jacket.

Dress Up Your Dog

If you have a dog, you can use beads to make them a beaded and woven dog collar. This works well with a leather dog collar. Choose beads that are brightly colored so the collar will stand out on your dog. If your dog is young and will be growing, make a breaded and woven collar in different sizes so they will continue having a beautiful collar as they grow.

Put on Flower Containers

If you love flowers and have flower containers that you place outside you can dress up the containers so they are as beautiful as the flowers. This is a very easy project as you simply hot glue the beads on to the pot. They will hold well no matter if you have a ceramic or plastic pot. If you have houseplants, you can also dress up the pots they are in.

Make a Bookmark

If you or someone else you know is a reader, you can easily make a bookmark. Make up several of these to give to all of your family and friends that love to read. They would also make a great gift. Purchase some bookmarks that you like. If the bookmark does not already have a hole at the top, use a hole puncher to punch one.

Loop a strand of ribbon through the hole, slide on the beads that you want to use, and then tie the end of the ribbon. This is very simple to make and if you have any children they could help you make them.

You could turn all of this into a hobby or if you get really good at it sell the items you make with your beads. For more information, contact companies like Mayer Import Co Inc Imitation Stones.

Double Up: Bunks Beds as a Small Room Solution

Having to place children's furniture in a small bedroom presented a problem for me. With two growing kids, I needed a dresser to accommodate both boys, as well as two beds. With two beds, desk and chair, toy chest and floor lamp, the room seemed overly crowded. My solution came with a highly functional bunk bed. Bunk beds take up minimal space. Better yet, my choice was a bunk that included a storage drawer. This compartment is used for storing the boys' small toys and other necessities. I didn't have to have a separate toy chest, so I reduced clutter which was great! When you have multiple children all in one room, you need all the help you can get!
