DIY Sun-catchers (or whatever you want them to be!)

What you'll need:
-plastic beads
-circular cake pan
1. Fill your cake pan with a layer of plastic beads. If you want the outcome to be a sun catcher, you should use a lot of transparent beads. If you just want it to be a little plate or decoration, you can use whatever kinds and colours of plastic beads you want.
2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and bake the beads for 20-30 minutes. (Mine took around 30 minutes)
3. Wait until it entirely cools. I put mine in front of a cold vent, and after a while they began to make a cracking sound which meant they were detaching from the bottom of the pan. Then you can just turn it upside down and tap the bottom of the pan a couple of times. It should come right out! Done!

By the way, the lemons in this photo are earrings! And you can get your own fruit earrings here!

My mom saw mine and decided to make one, too!
