Layer translucent pony beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 for 20 minutes,let cool, & then just flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher! Great craft for kids! Should do the next time the nieces are in town! Note- keep windows open and/or fan on for good ventilation.
DIY Coasters - buy cheap tiles and scrapbook paper: use sponge brush and apply a light coat of mod podge to tiles, center design on tile (let dry 20 min.), apply another coat and let dry, repeat process 5 or 6 times, apply a sealant like polyurethane spray, glue felt or cork to the bottom of the tiles. (mod podge may take up to a month to fully cure)
