Melted Beads Christmas Ornaments

Day #5  Christmas in July ! 

 Homemade Christmas tree ornaments from melted beads : 


Use a toothpick to stand all of the beads upright and completely fill the cookie cutter, removing any extra beads. Place the cookie sheet into a cold oven then bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 11 minutes. (Note: Melting plastic can create an odor.Then let completely cool and thread with ribbon for hanger......

If using pony beads : Perler beads take about 30 minutes at 350 degrees to form the candy dot shape (first melting into flat rings and then into a dot after awhile). Pony beads melt much more quickly, and they will continue to spread and get flatter and wider the longer they are left in the oven...... Lisa

Day #3 * Christmas

Christmas in July : Day #4 

Ornament Directions : 

clear plastic or glass ornaments 
assorted color pain  ( bottle paint ) 
glue and glitter 

 Take top off of ornaments. Now, gently squeeze  paint just a little inside your ornament, turn your ornament a little and squeeze a little more. Let the paint run around the inside of the ornament before adding more paint. Once all the gaps are filled, place your ornament upside down in a cup to let any excess paint drain out, and then set your ornaments aside to dry. I recommend drying for at least 48 hours before you replace the top to your ornament. Decorate the outside with glue and glitter and let dry.    Lisa

Happy July

Welcome  July ! 

I glad that you are visiting here for some creative inspiration from Me. Who I am -I a Mom, Wife , volunteer librarian and Crafter who lives in Rural Louisiana. Meaning I am an hour away from craft store -so lots of my crafts are make do projects with what I have on hand or found online. 

What kind of Crafts I do :  Well I am a paper crafter , quilter (sewer) and dabble in candle making and homemade bath products . And love to gift homemade projects as gifts to love one. As well as having kids craft classes at the library for home school groups and library members. I find myself like most craft lovers a dabbler of many things -and master of none. But love learning New things and sharing with my online friends.... Lisa
