Like Shannon at Madigan Made, I find it hard to resist the siren call of a good dollar store. You never know when a new craft might jump out at you! Case in point: she made this fantastic ombre beaded necklace using ponytail holder beads! I love big, chunky necklaces, and I’d never guess that this one started out as part of a dollar store ponytail holder pack. (Her idea of using sanding to give some beads a more matte finish is especially brilliant.) Follow the link to see the full tutorial.
