How did you drill a hole it in? Just with a normal drill?

Also, has anyone tried using a grill to melt the beads?

Love these! I want to make them, but my boyfriend's worried it will stink up the house. Did it smell a lot when you made them??

Made suncatchers with my little granddaughters today. They were so proud of their finished products! You can check out them showing off their suncatchers here:

This tutorial has been pinned for a very long time but my daughter and I finally had a craft day over the weekend and I decided to finally try this out. My daughter had a blast! We made three but only took pictures of two. The third is nothing but glitter beads and looks the best. One for the neighbor, teacher and then one for home. We're going to use them as a spoon rest in the kitchen...I hope that is safe, I don't see why not. I guess I'll let you all know in a few months if one of us develops some strange abnormalities? Either way, the smell wasn't HORRIBLE. I turned the fan on over the oven and opened the back door to air it out and it wasn't a horrible lingering smell that lasted for hours. We'll be making more of these!

I took my toaster over into the garage. It worked great and no bed smell in the house!

I've done the cookie cutter thing!  works like a charm. Once the plastic starts to cool it shrinks a bit and comes right away from the cutter.  and then just dremel a small hole!
