Melted plastic bead suncatchers 1 layer of plastic beads in cake pan. A glass bead leaves a hole for hanging. 450◦F for 20 minutes (the bigger, more opaque beads can take longer). Open the windows to ventilate or bake in a closed gas grill outside. They'll just slip out when cool. Poke a paper clip through the bead before fully cooled to make sure the hole is open...made and photographed by Autumn Sproles
Learned this on Pinterest and tried it today! Heat oven to 500 degrees and put some marbles (you can put clear colored or clear with color in the middle) and heat for 20 mins...longer is OK but no better... After, put them in a bowl of cold water. I used a regular ceramic bowl and was afraid of shatter but nothing! It just cracks inside and creates GORGEOUS sparkles! Kids loved it and soooooo easy! Give it a try!
