Melted Bead Ornaments
  • Clear Pony Beads
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Fishing Line
  1. Arrange your cookie cutters on a flat pan lined with aluminum foil.
  2. Pour some pony beads into each cookie cutter. Use a toothpick to stand all of the beads upright and completely fill the cookie cutter. Remove any extra beads.
  3. Take your toaster oven outside (or use your barbecue). Place the pan into a cold toaster oven then bake at 450F for 8 to 12 minutes. (Mine took 11 minutes, but it was a cold day)
  4. Remove the pan from the toaster oven when the beads have completely melted together, but before they start to bubble.
  5. Place the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to cool.
  6. Gently pull the edges of the cookie cutter away from the plastic and push out each shape.
  7. Using a ⅛ inch drill bit, drill a hole through each of the ornaments.
  8. Tie a short piece of fishing line onto each of the ornaments and hang on the Christmas tree or on suction cup hooks in the window.
