Melted Bead Sun Catcher

Baking Pan
Cookie Cutter - Metal
Toaster Oven or Oven

Fishing Line
Plastic Beads

Place cookie cutters on the baking pan.

Fill the cookie cutters with the plastic beads in a single layer.
Use a glass or metal bead in the cookie cutter for a hole to thread fishing line.

Carefully put the baking pan  in a preheated 425 degree toaster oven.
The melted beads give off a strong odor.  Baking outside is highly recommended.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the beads are melted.

Allow the beads to cool before removing.

Drill a small hole into the melted beads.
Power tools should be used by adults only.

Cut a 18 inch piece of fishing line.

Thread the fishing line through the hole and tie an overhand knot.  You can see how to tie an overhand knot HERE.

Your Sun Catcher is ready to hang.
