DIY for the kids - recycled plastic bead suncatcher tutorial

DIY with the kids .
Easy sun catchers.



Arrange pony beads, plastic cheap beads in a baking tin. Bake on high in the oven until fully melted. Different beads melt differently. Let it cool before popping out. I found some edges a bit rough so put it on a flat tray and rebaked to smooth it off. 

I also added a piece of wire under the centre top before rebaking so it would adhere into the catcher for hanging later.
Once cool I made a loop in my sticking out wire and hung on a suction cup I got from ebay.
