We used these tiny little beads to make pictures to hang in our windows. My children loved doing this and especially loved watching their work melt together to become a beautiful sun catcher.

How We Did It

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and grease your pan with oil or baking spray.

This was a great evening calm down craft. My kids sat and carefully placed each bead, creating fun pictures. This one was a colorful tree that my daughter was working on for quite awhile.

We made sure the beads were all touching and also tried to create a small hole in the top of each design for twine to fit through. Once this was done, into the oven they went.

I pulled each out after about 10 minutes and when the beads had melted together. My children loved seeing this. While our sun catchers were still warm I quickly peeled each one off the baking pan.

We hung them with a little twine in our windows. They all looked so beautiful when the sun shone on them.
