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 toaster oven at 425 degrees F.

While the toaster 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.

Important: This is an OUTSIDE project.

Plug you toaster oven outside and play in your backyard!

Update: Some of my readers have shared that they have melted the beads in a gas grill  outside and it worked. So there you have two clever options to melt the beads out of the kitchen.

Brilliant idea!

Here is how the single beads look after melting.

…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.

    You don’t say how long it takes. I tried my BBQ and it melted some more than others. And they didn’t retain their shape. Maybe too hot.
