Melted Bead Candy Canes | Candy Cane Bead Ornaments
These melted bead candy canes are SO EASY to make and they're the cutest homemade Christmas ornaments ever!
Clear Pony Beads
Silver Jingle Bells
Line a small, flat pan with aluminum foil.
Arrange the beads in a candy cane shape, alternating colours as you go.
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)
Remove the pan from the toaster oven when the beads have completely fused together, but before they flatten completely or start to bubble.
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.
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.
If you're using these as Christmas ornaments, tie on another piece of fishing line to use as a hanger.
