Pot plants made from soda bottles with bits of beads on them.  And those starry things that you can see are also beaded stuff!

Beady fairy... or angel...

Incidentally... our beaded curtains were getting rather dusty and cruddy looking - so I washed them in a bucket of soapy water and hung them on the line to dry. They look great again. Although some of the salt dough beads were not properly sealed and disintegrated!  That's the great thing about hanging each string on it's own hook on the curtain rail - really easy to replace or take off.

A bunch of dough beads (those Xmas pressies again!). Gave the red ones to my mom and she's still wearing them - 2 years later.
