HEY YALL!! I am so excited to show you this craft!
Yes Yes Yes… You will fall in LOVE. First of all let me tell you that I really am fascinated by ZAK! Have you ever heard of them? Well, they have this AMAZING “confetti” collection that makes me smile from ear to ear.
I started thinking of ways I could “re-create” something similar to the plastic “confetti”.
Let’s begin by getting some ingredients:
I bought this pack at Michaels for around 12 bucks.
You will start by getting a heat “safe” plate and pour your beads onto the plate. Push all of them down so they all lay even. It does not matter if some are flat and some are faced up. Set your oven to 400 degrees and let it pre heat while you make your design.
If you notice it will start to melt in the center first. Leave it in the oven for 10 minutes.
When you take it out this is what it will look like! So pretty right!!!!
Let it sit until it cools off. Once it is cool it will pop right out.
There are a ton of things you can use these for! I have them all over the house. I like one in my bathroom to put my little earrings in so I don’t loose them. Use them for a Candle holder, fruit bowl, soap dish, bottom of a pot plant, on the wall as decorative plates ((hehehe if they fall they won’t break!!!))), you get it right!!! You can use it for SOOO MUCH JADERBUGS!
I kinda went CRAZY making these suckers. What can I say, I get crazy with bright fun things! It’s truly addicting!! I will be putting some for sale in my Etsy store . Sometimes it’s easier to just “BUY” them. Right! So stay tuned for that!
I just love this little bowl. My mind is going CUH-RAZY thinking of all the things to put in here.
I hope you RUN to Michael’s and grab some beads! You can make this for a Christmas gift, Easter gift, Birthday or just a FUN GET TOGETHER! It is truly affordable and kid’s would love to make them.
FYI: Sorry Jackson that you are previewing your Birthday gift.
Thanx for the idea! Many are popping into my head right now:)
Hey Renee! Glad I could give you tons of ideas! Let me know what you decide to do! Come back soon!
I attempted to make some of my own but the finished product won’t come off of my plate! haha any suggestions?
Make sure you spray olive oil or pam on the plate before you bake it! Hope this helps!
Hey! I just stumbled upon this article and it’s amazing – I’m gonna do it with my BFF for the holidays! I’d like to ask if it’s possible to use the same kind of beads but it’s from IKEA because I already had the beads from last time so it should be okay to put them in the oven right since it’s childsafe. Thanks! And your site is AMAZING 🙂
I would try a little piece before doing a HUGE piece. I have never tried to use any other beads… Good luck
Yes I ran to Hobby Lobby and my son and I have been making them all day. Thanks
That is AMAZING!!!! So glad you are having fun with this!! It is addictive!
