I know this isn’t about weight loss (which I am back on the right track, by the way, it’s just slow going getting my momentum back). Nor is this about couponing and saving money. But hey, it’s my blog and I can write about whatever I want, right? So, I came across this neat idea for a creative art project. Melted beads. Have you ever heard about it? Well, here’s my first attempt. I’m pretty proud of myself – especially considering at the current moment, it’s 3:00 a.m. and my brain is still functioning.
First, you take a bunch of cheap pony beads – we already had a whole Ziploc container full in our cabinet. Just a note: the metallic and solid colored ones don’t work. Don’t ask how I found out. Anyway, you take these beads and lay them out in a glass or metal container. I used glass tonight. Make sure you lay them out in one single layer with the sides touching. You can also use small bread pans, mugs or cake / pie pans.
Then stick them in your oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. This is what comes out:
So for all of you who have always wondered what this night owl does all night, here’s your answer! 🙂 Hey, my house is quiet – I get creative when it’s quiet!
