Another smart use for unfinished (and painted) wooden beads: modern hanging planters reminiscent of vintage macramé.
The hangers feature unfinished or black-painted wood beads stacked in different sizes. Available as a single or double tier, each porcelain cup holds 4 to 5-inch air plants and includes a 36-inch looped string for easy installation.
