I adore old necklaces. I had to be very selective as to which necklaces I could take apart for this project.
Old necklaces and straight pins.
Put beads on pins in a variety of arrangements. Hint - work with beads on a towel so they dont roll all over the place.
Put a little glue on the end of the pin and stick into a stryofoam ball. This project takes a lot of beads and a lot of time but is worth the effort.
I absolutely love the end result.

I found this idea after Christmas so I know it's late to post for this past Christmas but I liked it so much that I had to share. I'll be on the lookout for old necklaces all year round so I can make more.
