Melting Plastic Beads in Oven | One Crafty Mama!: Melted Bead Suncatcher tutorial.....Melting Beads ... Melt your choice of colored beads in a metal cookie cutter placed on a cookie sheet or cake pan and when cool, wrap with wire and add metal beads, charms etc. to make a beautiful stained glass pendant ;)
These melted bead ornaments are SO BEAUTIFUL! And they're so easy to make with pony beads! You can hang them on the Christmas tree, or use suction cup hooks on the window to turn them into sun catchers.
How to make a sun catcher out of pony beads found at any craft store. Place the beads in a metal pie pan. The tighter the beads, the thicker the sun catcher. Bake @ 400 degrees for about 20 minutes . No need to grease pan...it will pop out by itself when it cools. Drill a hole and run a cord through to hang or use suction cup to place on window. Nice gift!
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…
