How can I reuse or recycle wire egg dippers?

Wire egg dipperWe’ve had an email from Ang, asking:

What can I make with the wire dippers in the PAAS egg dying kit? I have a whole bag of them.. how can I recycle these?

Maybe offer them to a local school for them to use at Easter?

I’ve never dyed eggs so I don’t know how strong they are but could they be made into little hanging pen pots? Nail/push-pin the hoop to a wall/noticeboard/cubicle and clip pens onto the ring – or stitch a small fabric pouch onto the ring to drop pencils into?

Any other suggestions?

    That wire is very flexible – it can be bent, coiled, flexed into any shape so…jewelry, ornaments, etc.

    Although halo is good.

    If you were making angels for a Christmas tree, they’d make perfect halos.

    If you are interested, I would like to buy them. I need them for a project. If interested please email me at

    Obviously you save them for next year and when your kids are grown up, package them neatly and give to a thrift store!

    i think they would make perfect bubble blowers, if you have any children around let them try it.

    Any crafter you know can use them for jewelry. I once saw some really pretty seahorse earrings in a book, but that’s only for those who are really good at metalworking.
