Use plastic beads (pony beads) to create dishes, platters and sun catchers
This started with a craft kit my girls received at Christmas. It was AWESOME (is that word even current anymore?). Well, it was. It came with these tiny plastic beads that you could melt into dishes.
The girls made fancy patterns with the beads and then I put them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
They came out in a flat disk, the shape of the pie pan.
You were then supposed to pick a metal or glass item (that wouldn’t melt) and lay the disk over top and put back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
Something like this:
After it cooled you could remove it from the jar and it would look like this:
A cute dish for jewellery or change or whatever. Well you know I couldn’t leave well enough alone…. I had to have one for myself as well. I saw these super-cute cake stands on Pinterest and had to give it a whirl.
