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
