Craft: DIY Bead Suncatchers

What you'll need:

  • Translucent Plastic Pony Beads, Any Colors
  • Metal Baking Dishes, Any Size (we used muffin tin sections)


Heat oven to 395 degrees.

Arrange beads in muffin tin into any design you like.

Carefully place the pan in preheated oven for 25-30 mins. The longer it bakes, the flatter your suncatchers will become. Please use ventilation and caution when melting plastic beads.  Do not melt plastic around pets or children.

Remove from oven and allow to fully cool.

Gently invert the pan over to release the suncatchers. Drill a small hole in each suncatcher, then string some ribbon or twine through the holes, tie, and hang!
