Dont throw away your old shoes and belts!you can still get something out of them.If you dont have dreads you can use them for beads and make a really cool necklace.
Get your old shoe,belt,scissors and wire cutter.
with the scissors get that round thing out of your shoes.the thing that you put your shoelaces in.Sometimes its stuck but keep trying and it will come out.Same thing with the belt.
get all those thingies out.
With the wire cutter fold back the parts that came up when you where pulling it out with the scissors.With better quality shoes this does not happen.
the bigger ones are from belts,the smaller ones are from the shoes.
Now you just pull them on your dreads or use it for other things.I love shiny stuff so my hear is full of them.
