A few years ago we tried making these plastic beads from cut up pieces of water & pop bottles. It was really fun! The other idea I had was to make a mosaic type piece of art with by hot gluing them onto cardstock/cardboard backing. I had lots of help with the coloring this morning.
- Cut strips of clear plastic bottles.
- Color with permanent markers (Sharpies).
- Wrap around a needle-nose pliers.
- Heat with heat gun to melt. (I use a heat gun for embossing from Stampin Up!)

They can also be made into a necklace or bracelet.
