Video #2: Bead Sun Catcher

What you'll need:
  • Plastic Beads
  • Baking Pan
  • Fishing Line
  • Drill with a small bit
What you'll do:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread the beads into an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Bake beads in oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove when all the beads look melted together. Let the pan cool on the counter for 20-30 minutes. Once the pan cools, flip over and your sun catcher should pop right out! 

Use your drill with small bit and drill holes where you would like to add your fishing line. Thread a piece of fishing line through the hole and tie a knot to create a hanger. Place your sun catcher in a window that gets lots of light and enjoy the reflections of summer sun!
