      Melted bead suncatchers - HOME SWEET HOME Pretty Sun Catchers! Cheap plastic beads melted in a thin layer in a metal cake pan & some ceramic dishes. 400 degrees for about 20 min. When cool just invert & they fall right out. Drill a hole in them & string them on fishing line. Note: I read elsewhere that 350 degrees for 15 minutes works. So keep an eye on it.
