Melted Bead Candy Canes | Candy Cane Bead Ornaments
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • Clear Pony Beads
  • Fishing Line
  • Silver Jingle Bells
  1. Line a small, flat pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Arrange the beads in a candy cane shape, alternating colours as you go.
  3. Take your toaster oven outside (or use your barbecue). Place the pan into a cold toaster oven then bake at 450F for 5 to 9 minutes. (Mine took 7 minutes, but it was a cold day)
  4. Remove the pan from the toaster oven when the beads have completely fused together, but before they flatten completely or start to bubble.
  5. Leave the beads outside for a few minutes to let the smell dissipate. Then place the pan in the fridge or freezer for 10 more minutes to fully harden.
  6. Thread two jingle bells onto a piece of fishing line and tie a small knot to keep them together. Then tie the fishing line around the candy cane and tie a knot.
  7. If you're using these as Christmas ornaments, tie on another piece of fishing line to use as a hanger.
