DIY Melted Bead Suncatcher - YouTube Video

Looking for a fun, fast, and inexpensive craft to do with the kiddos? Look no further, ta-da! DIY melted bead suncatchers are fun for the whole family. They make great gifts or just a fun craft to do with the kids. Keep reading below for what you'll need, tips, and a how-to video!

What you'll need:
- cheap plastic pony bead
- cake pans, cookie cutters, and cookie sheet
- an oven
- power drill (to be able to hang them)
- string

NOTES:
- No, this did not stink up my house, but I did have the stove vent on and the window open to circulate the air
- You do NOT need to spray the cake pan or cookie cutters
- While cooling your suncatchers will make a popping sound, this is the plastic drawing away from the pans and means they will soon be ready to pop out!
- Allow your suncatchers to cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes and then pop out once fully cooled
- I used a convection oven set at 400F and cooked my suncatchers for 30 to 45 minutes or until the surface looked smooth and fully melted
