Suncatcher by melting pony beads!  1. Arrange beads in non-stick pan.  2. Put in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes (I checked every five to be safe).  3. Once removed from oven, allow to cool in pan.  4. Pop out of pan and enjoy your creation!  You can also make smaller ones by using a cupcake pan and if you'd like to have a built-in hole for a string, place a metal or ceramic bead on it's side among the pony beads.  The plastic will melt around it and you will have a hole for hanging string…
