Just when you thought you couldn't possible see another post about melted beads, bowls, lampshades, etc. - I did another one!  Smiley

I did this yesterday morning as a gift for my boy... Smiley  I still have to drill out holes in the upper corners, so it can hang from a window, on a wall, etc., but it's basically done.  Smiley
OH!  And the stars glow in the dark, but I forgot to take it to a dark room to check it out just yet...so not sure how that looks.  Sounds neat though... Smiley

Thanks for lookin'!  Grin



Some misc. pictures...

All beaded & good to go.  Smiley


Good bye sweet beads...


With a wall as a backdrop... Smiley  Flash on!


Flash off!

I've had thoughts of making flat, decorative things like this, you just beat me to it! I actually think they would make really great coasters.

sweets4ever--who could get tired of those lovely creations!! You have taken plastic beads from the scourge of the bead world to a place of honor!!

Do you have safety tips?  Like, do you wear a mask?  I do not cook so I am afraid of the oven, but I would like to try this soon!!

What type of beads do you use?  Any old plastic beads?  That really is amazing.
