Crafty Bits?????

Hello friends







I've been given a bag full of craft bits and pieces to pass on which some have. However there are some I can't. I don't know what they are and what they can be used for. There are no holes in them for threading. Made of hard plastic.
I'm hoping that some of my crafty readers may be able to help.
Some look like they should be in a peg board but there are too many. The colours are so pretty it would be shame not to use them in some way. I thought of tying some fishing wire around the stems and making something that hangs but they'll just fall through as there is nothing to hold on to. 
There is quite a lot here and many more.
Any information or ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Carolx

  1. How about covering a flower pot or clean tin can with some putty type adhesive [tile adhesive?] , and poking them in to cover the pot with 'jewels' ?They look like they belong on a pegboard- but their shafts seem different thicknesses. Or could you poke them into polystyrene shapes like they sell in H-craft?

    1. I like the flower pot idea. You're right some of the shafts are too thick.

  2. They do look like beg board pegs. Might be easier to make 'beading' if you hot glue them to some wire. Sorry, no help!

    1. Might be able to hot glue them onto something else.

  3. They are for ceramic Christmas trees. The light inside comes out through the colored pegs.

    1. Thanks Janet. Sound like the Christmas trees would have been lovely and colourful.
