How to turn pony beads into a fun kids craft by Hip2Save.comIf you’re looking for an easy craft to make this summer with the kids, try this fun melted beads craft. Get creative with different bead colors and shapes – create bowls, fun flower accessories and more. For safety reasons, be sure to supervise your children and make sure an adult is present to assist with placing beads in the oven.

For This Craft You’ll Need:

Pony Beads (found at any craft store)
Pam baking spray
Baking tray covered in foil
Oven safe bowl or cups

Melted Bead Bowls as an Easy Summer Craft by Hip2Save.comDirections: Cover a baking sheet with foil. Spray foil with a little nonstick spray. Make a shape with beads – I made a flag and flowers. Use a ruler to make lines straight if desired. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for about 13 minutes. Keep a close eye on your creations as you don’t want them to burn Let cool, then remove from foil.

If making flowers, you can glue them to hair clips or blank rings as jewelry. If you poke a hole in them right out of the oven, you can use a safety pin to make a decorative pin or even make cute dangling wire earrings.
To make a bowl like the ones pictured above, I first sprayed the area with nonstick spray and then made a circle on the foil with beads. I baked in the oven at 400 degrees until it melted (about 13 minutes) and then very carefully moved my baked creation to an upside down bowl covered with foil using oven mitts. Press it gently down so it molds to the bowl shape and then put it back in the oven for a minute or two. I also made a smaller bowl using a mason jar bottom as the mold.
