Over at Mich L. in LA, our friend (and intrepid dollar store crafter) Michelle is constantly amazing us with her innovation. Check out her most recent reuse project: dressing ho-hum beads up in a jaunty silicone sleeve. Where did she find such a silicone sleeve, you ask? Well, come closer my children and you shall hear the tale of Mich L. and her plastic cheerios! [how to dress up beads]
The silicone “cheerios” (as she calls them) are snipped from plastic pencil holders. It turns out they are a super simple way to embellish boring beads and give them a bright, contemporary look. You can find pencil holders at the dollar store.
