2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Valentine's day melted bead and waxpaper suncatchers! on: January 21, 2014 08:48:21 AM
What an interesting idea.  What kind of beads, and how did you melt them?


I used a variety of different sized plastic beads, but most people only use pony beads. Some of my beads were a lot smaller.

I used a method similar to this one, except I used regular sewing thread for a couple of the hearts, and thin jewelry wire for a couple, and melted them in the toaster oven. Because my beads were smaller, I also had to smoosh some of the beads together with the flat end of a spoon while they were cooling to get them to touch each other and stick. It was still easy, though. Smiley

Oops! Meant to post this on the other board. Sorry!

This isn't really completely finished, but it's never really finished. Smiley It's an ongoing project with a blacklight, poster boards, fine-tipped sharpie, and highlighter markers. Some of the stuff I draw and then let the kids color it in with highlighters, sort of like a DIY blacklight coloring book. Smiley

I'm really happy with this flower in particular.



Beside it's immediate current neighbors:

These are the waxpaper/crayon heart suncatchers. The one in the middle on the bottom is "mosaic'ed" from leftover scraps, clear tape, and "framed" with a cut out paper plate. lol.
