Question Cheap Decorations?

So I was thinking of different things I could use to decorate my tank.
My first thought of course was silk plants found at a dollar store, then I was thinking of using a mug or something for a cave.

Just a minute ago I found a crap load of those beaded necklaces thrown around at parades and such and I also found different ribbon.

I was wondering if it was safe to use them in my bettas tank?

Also, what are some cheap ways to decorate a tank?

My mom and I were walking around petsmart and she pointed out a couple of neon fake plants for 99 cents. And gravel for $2

I would be wary of the beaded necklaces, they are typically plastic with metallic paint-plastic on them, I have the oddest feeling the covering would peel off in water. The ribbon might be okay but, check it for color-fastness... wouldn't want those dyes leeching into the water.

Have you looked at the DIY thread here? http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=245289 They have bunches of cool homemade decor.

I didn't think of the metal parts until after posting the thread...
I'll have to come up with something creative for ribbon..

and yes I've checked that thread.
