Hi Janet,
I use pony beads to crochet on socks. When my oldest daughter was little I used to crochet beads onto the edges of her socks to match her outfits. They are quick and easy and really turn out cute!!

You know you can melt them too! Have a bowl or some kind of form, put foil on it and then stack your beads up on the inside, building up the walls and then bake . If I remember its 350 or 375. You have to keep an eye on them. They will melt together. If you have an exhaust fan, turn it on cuz pony beads smell bad ! You can make candle holders, a fruit bowl, etc.... I had some of the transparent colored ones and
when they melted they were really pretty!

I'm also a bit of an addict and like crocheting them into jewellery. I've made loads of crocheted wool bracelets with pony beads crocheted in and I've recently started doing the same with beading wire.
