Pony Beads & Baking Paper. Place the beads in close shapes on baking paper/bake in oven at 425F ~10 min. (since the fumes are probably toxic, I'd try a heat gun). The beads also melts with different speed, so keep a close eye on oven at all times. Then cool. Use as desired.
Finished product of melted pony bead craft. They melt best in metal pans but also can be melted in oven safe glass. The plastic is harder to get out of glass so I put the item in the freezer for a couple minutes and they pop right out! All I need to do is get my hubbie to drill holes in each so I can hang them! Next I wanna try the glow in the dark beads!

These look fun! Use pony beads to make sun catchers. Melt them in a muffin tin in the oven for 25 minutes or on the grill for 10. Supposedly they pop out without any residue or damage to the pan.
