Here's my first one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0

And here's my second!  Smiley  I used a few strands of valentine heart beads and then a mix of multi facet beads to fill the gaps.  It's taller than the first one, so you can't see the bulb from any angle this time - yay!

I LOVE the hue it casts on the wall.

That's incredible!  Can you use any plastic beads?  Can you add other stuff like wire, charms etc.?

I've found that the bigger the beads, the better they melt.  So I stick to pony beads & multi facet round ones.  Seed beads neevvvver melt (well, my patience ran out long before they even got soft, hehe!).

I've strung beads onto wire & then shaped them, but have never added wire for decoration.  I'm sure you could though!  You can also drill through it once it's cooled/hardened & you could add dangles & such.  Smiley

Thank you.. Smiley  Some of the heart beads still look like hearts in person, so I guess the glow matches the theme.  Smiley
