Ok, I'm not really sure where else to really post these, but candle holders are for the home are they not? Anyway, feedback would be appreciated as I'm thinking of giving them away as gifts. I apologize for the crappy cell pics, my digi cam has died and I haven't gotten another yet...











They are seriously VERY prettier in person! Really bright too.

Those are pretty.  I've yet to start melting things.  What kind of beads did you use?

I used these cheap, translucent, plastic beads from Michaels (although I also saw them in Walmart). It was like a 1lb bag for about $5. It was really fun to do, the fumes get to ya after awhile, but well worth it I think Smiley

Yeah and the best part is that every one of them is unique Smiley

I arranged my beads in a circle on tin foil in the toaster oven and baked at 400. I didn't really time them, just kept an eye on them and took them out when they looked how I wanted them to look. Then I turned a glass upside down, covered the end with tin foil, and placed on a baking sheet. I put the round piece of plastic on top of that and again baked at 400, except this time in the normal oven (since my toaster oven is small).

I find it troublesome timing things, I just watch it to make sure there's no burning going on or anything  Wink
