Dare to bead: Tassels
Tassels or fringes are such fun to make and they have so many uses! They always look good, whether they are made with small delicate beads, or heavier and larger ones. When making tassels you will often find the ideal opportunity to add those few special beads you were saving to make a project your own, or simply to use up those odd beads you had lying around. Tassels can be used to adorn cupboards, or to put onto handbags and belts. They can also be attached to neckpieces, or worn as jewellery, and much, much more!

Vintage remakes: Beaded earrings
There's something about cluster earrings that makes me feel feminine. But they can be quite expensive and more than that, I have so many beads left over from previous projects that I just had to find a way to use them! If you are in the same boat, this is the project for you.
Outside Art – Curvy-linear
Carve an easy project with plaster of Paris and vermiculite Though it is often avoided as an art form, carving can be quite easy, especially in a project like this: A flat panel is brought to life by simply removing sections of it with a carving tool. Different levels add interest. The addition of vermiculite as an aggregate to plaster of Paris slows down the drying time, allowing you to work on your project for weeks and even months, if well covered with plastic during the process. A further dimension is added by painting it with thinned acrylic paint when dry. This should be well-sealed back, front and sides for outdoor use.
