Here's a quick and easy trick: make needles out of the ends of your stringing material using glue. This comes in handy when a needle and doubled-over thread won't fit through your bead holes, or when you'd rather have a quick way to thread beads without needing to thread and re-thread needles (i.e. when you're knotting up some macramé with beads).

Grab some glue, a spare plastic baggie, and your stringing material of choice. Have flush cutters or snips on hand to angle-cut the end for precision...just be sure you wait til your glue has dried!
