Fun project to do with the kids! Melted bead suncatchers - *Layer cheap plastic beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool & then flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher.
After melting beads, let them cool, then peel them out of their tin foil forms. using a cookie cuter, the cooled plastic popped right out of it. Wrap soft 24 gauge wire around. Try coordinating seed beads added to the wire.
