Water beads are small, gel-like balls that are often used as a decoration or to add intrigue to floral arrangements. When they’re dry, water beads are hard and can be difficult to the touch. But when they come into contact with water, they absorb it and become soft.
Water beads can be clear, or they can be dyed in a wide range of colors. You’ll often see them used as vase filler or in centerpieces. But there are many other ways to use water beads!
