I love what you do with the beads! My question is: how do you get them to stay in place on a curved surface (until they start to melt)?

I'm totally trying this-we have those lamps too that appeared from no where-they were wedding gifts maybe? Thank you so much for sharing this!

I was gonna ASK about ventilation!!!  TY for answering it already!!!  I was wondering cause the last time I tried melting plastic in my over I got horrible headaches (I didnt think to ventilate) Sad

I looks GREAT!!!!  I must to go rewire the lamp now so I'll HAVE a place to use just such a lamp shade!!!  Wink  (wonder how the dd's glow in the dark pony beads would work in this project.....hummmm.... must to distract the dd ...... lol)

OH man seriously a craft for me to do outside, the fumes are kicking my butt  the small crafts I did came out great but the big one is giving me hell AND I now have a very old BORROWED metal mixing bowl that has HARD plastic melted into the lip of the bowl and I have to try to melt it off since it wont break off, I will be brain dead by the time I fix this.... seriously cool craft to do outside.
some dice melt at 350* and the speckled ones dont...

Wow!  Awesome project.  Turned out great!  I must try this one day.  Great, one more thing to tempt me at secondhand stores.  Pony beads, here I come!  Smiley
