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
