Make wire and bead ornaments (via

When Emily from Everyday Art received a box full of mismatched beads, she knew she had to put them to a good use.  Then Christmas came along, and inspiration struck!  Her light and airy ornaments made from wire strung with the assortment of beads look like something you might find in a high-end department store with a hefty price tag, even though they cost practically nothing to make.  This is a great stashbusting project because it gives you a way to use up odds and ends of beads left over from other projects!  [how to make wire and bead ornaments]
