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.
