Barrel Pony Beads are great for children’s crafts and beginners and here at The Bead Shop we have a huge range of colours and effects to create eye-catching pieces. They are made of a durable plastic with a large hole so are very easy to string on a whole host of stringing materials, from waxed cord and leather to Shamballa cord and stretch elastic. If you can’t pick just one colour from these beautiful shades then our pre-mixed packs are the perfect solution for your Pony Bead needs.
Pony beads are a truly wonderful bead. Made from durable plastic, they are a hard-wearing, colour-fast option to seed beads and round beads and are available in a fantastic range of bright and fun colours such as Glow In The Dark, Glitter, Neon and Pearl. They are perfect for a whole range of creative projects from stretch bracelets and necklaces to beadweaving, decorations and hair braiding.
You can even melt these (carefully!) to create stained glass effect pieces and beautiful bowls using just a normal oven and baking tray or muffin tin: If you are looking for inspiration you can find a tutorial of how to make a melted sun catcher over on our blog.
Due to their large hole and easy spherical shape, pony beads are brilliant for use with thicker cords, making them the ideal bead for children's projects or beginners. These inexpensive beads are so versatile with beautiful bright colours they are the perfect bead for adding a beautiful pop of colour to your next creative project.
