Hey all, I just made a few more melted bead creations and I wanted to share with the class
I made these nightlights for my mom and stepdad for Easter. All I did was melt the beads in a square form, then mold them around the side of a standard coffee mug. I gluegunned them to some $1 nightlights from Wal*Mart and voila, shnazzy Easter presents! (one is the moon and the other is Saturn or some other ringed planet):
This one inspired the nightlights, but I made it for myself because I needed a nifty piece of home decor for my new apartment. I did the regular bead-melting thing and then stuck the big beads on after I took it out of the oven so they wouldn't melt:http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t29/flatpointdropout/Tlight.jpg
More bead fun to come, I'll post again soon!
