During the weekend we made some melted bead jewelry and a few bookmarks.

My girls could not stop making their own earrings and seriously this is so affordable that

you don’t feel bad when they lose them.

Look how cute they look… So fun!

If you have never melted beads before let me tell you, this is a 15 minute project.

You can make a ton of jewelry, bookmarks, hair clips, and even magnets for under $5.

They are perfect for gifts!

 

Here is the Tutorial

The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven at 425 degrees F.

While the oven heats up place a baking parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet.

Make the shapes placing your beads to your like.

Have fun mixing colors and playing with different combinations.

You can see below what the beads look like before and after melting.

The flowers will take 10 minutes to melt. The earrings will take between 8 to 10 minutes.

I like to make them when the kids are at school or playing outside.

Important: Make sure you open the windows and doors.

My advise is to leave the room since the smell of the beads is very strong.

Don’t stay or  keep the children in the kitchen

during the baking and cooling down process.

Go to the backyard to play!

Update: Some of my readers have shared that they have melted the beads in a toaster oven

and even in a gas grill  outside and it worked.

So there you have two clever options to melt the beads out of the kitchen.

Brilliant ideas!

Here is how the single beads look after melting.

After the melted beads have cooled down pull them out.

You can create a bunch of things with them.

…and my favorite, the earrings and rings.

Simply glue the backs to the melted beads.

UPDATE: I have a reader that suggested to use E3000

or a similar epoxy glue for a stronger bond,

 that way they won’t fall apart.

Do the same to make the ring…

These accessories make the cutest party favors and gifts.

Assemble them in a small tag and give them for birthday and Christ.mas presents

You even have time to make them for Easter Baskets.
