DIY Melted Bead Sun-Catchers


We first made these melted bead sun-catchers a few years ago courtesy of an idea we found on Pinterest
They have hung proudly around our house and in our windows for years, and I never tire of seeing them hanging around.  They add a pop of color and whimsy to otherwise plain windows.  We've even given them as gifts to friends and relatives who have them displayed in their windows. 

Here's what you'll need: 
  • Old muffin tins or pie pans (they should not be used for food after this project)
  • A tub of pony beads 
  • A drill with a small drill bit for drilling a hole in the sun catcher for hanging
  • Fishing line
 
 
 
Here's what you'll do:
  •  Separate the pony beads into bowls according to color (it makes them easier to work with)
  • Arrange the beads in the muffin tin or pie pan in the pattern you'd like your sun catcher to be.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes (Make sure you raise a few windows and if you can, go outside - the smell is bad and I'm sure it is not good for your lungs, but the smell goes away fast with the windows open)
  • Allow to cool.  You will probably hear a popping noise from the pans.  This is the sun catcher cooling off.
  • After cooling, they should pop right out of the pan easily.
