If they are long enough(3 or more inches) you can use them to make your bracelets adjustable like this:

It really works. Also, I heard someone threw the very small pieces into their yard for the birds to use in their nests, but that was yarn and therfire it was thicker. Hope that helps!!!!!!

If you have left over string, there is a tutorial on this website and on YouTube. The video is called "Recycled embroidery Floss Necklace." and she uses the rings around soda/pop bottles, but in one of the steps she talks about making your scrap strings into a "Magician's Scarf"

In other words, you tie overhand knots and connect your scrap string until its really long.

I took this idea and moved it one step further; I made hair wraps from all of the scraps.
I had enough of these scrap hair wraps, That i thought, this would be really cool as a entire wig. I've been told that my hair would look really cool in dreadlocks so about two years later i finished the Dreadlock hat/wig,

It was so glorious for people to see what i made.

I'm trying to make a tutorial on Instructables of how to you guys can make one so others can recreate this project.

But you really don't have to make an entire wig from you scraps, you can use the principle idea to make necklaces/chookers, Lanyards, bookmarks and even eyeglass straps.

I hope this helps!
