I've always been leery of melting plastic bc we live in an apartment building and our alarm goes off over burnt toast. But after seeing this I think I'm going to take a chance now. It's absolutely gorgeous sweets4ever. I've been wondering what I could put in my living room to bring together a red couch and orange chair and I think I've found it!!! A nice way to spice up cheap Target floor lamps! You rock!!!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I love this! I had no idea beads could be melted like that.  Shocked I'd try it, but I live in a small ranch house with a toddler and am not too keen on us passing out from the smell.  How long does it take for the smell to go away?

It smells the entire time it's baking and maybe a half an hour or so after.  I use the turbo exhaust on our microwave above the oven, and open a nearby window (and door in the summer) to ventilate it pretty quickly.
