Learn How To Use Pony Beads To Make Crafts And Jewelry

It's very easy to learn how to use pony beads to make crafts and jewelry. Before you do, keep in mind that while they're a lot like seed beads, they are much bigger. They come in various colors and shapes, but the pieces made of plastic and glass are the most popular. Whatever the makeup, they can be used for making numerous items and different fashion accessories.

How to Make a Key Chain

Required Tools and Materials

Step 1

Cut six strands of thread a foot long. You can use different colors.

Step 2

Fold this in half. Create a loop knot in the ring.

Step 3

String the objects together. Seven for each side is enough; too many and it will be brittle. Do the same for the other string. Make a double knot on the last head. This will secure all the heads. Trim the end and it is finished.

Note: use suede strands for key chains that will be used regularly. Thin macramé materials are also good choices. Don't use yarn, as it is too flimsy.

Make a Multicolor Bracelet

All you'll need are colorful pieces and an elastic cord. The cord should be double the length of their wrist. String the pieces on the cord. Once you have installed enough, secure the knot and trim the end.

Other Crafts

Pony beads can be used for holiday decors, be it Christmas or Halloween. Aside from bracelets, these can be used for making rings, necklaces and hair accessories. If you can't think of a design, there are numerous examples on the Net that can be downloaded.

Background

These objects were brought to America from Europe by travelers and explorers. The materials got their name because they were delivered via the Pony Express. These objects became popular among the Native Americans, who used them on their clothing, moccasins and also as necklaces. Animals were also fitted with these objects.

Shapes

These objects were known as barrels in the UK, because their original shape resembled a barrel. Today, these are made into every imaginable shape possible, from hearts to butterflies to different animals.

Plastic Variants

The plastic types offer the greatest variety. These include vehicles, balls, snowmen, Santa Claus or set to certain themes. These are either opaque or transparent.

Quality transparent plastic types look like glass. There are also some that have a metallic finish. The coating will be copper, gold or silver. There are also glittery types you can try out.

These are available in many shades so you can pick the one you really like. Try putting different shades of the same color and set them on your hair. While you can do the same with glass, the plastic types are less expensive.

Pony beads are available in many types and colors, giving you plenty of options for making the crafts you want. With its varied hues and shapes, making attractive key chains or bracelets should be a breeze.
