Make a vase for artificial flowers by recycling an empty thread cone and a used CD.
Approximate Time: About an hour
Begin by running a line of glue around the narrow end of the thread cone and glue it to the center of the CD. Let dry a few minutes to firm up. When secure, glue loose beads to the CD around the bottom of the cone.
On the very outside edge of the CD, glue a line of string beads, working just a few inches at a time. Glue a second string just inside the first. Trim the top edge of the cone with another string of beads.

How cute. I have lots of those thread cones too. I wondered what they's be good for.
That's really cute! perfect for a preteen girl! You should sell them at craft shows-or at least several and give to nieces, goddaughters, etc. as a party favor for a girls birthday party. The flowers could also be replace with a matching brush, comb, makeup brushes etc. Good luck to you!
Clever! We used to use those cones in VBS way back when but nothing as cute.
