We love to make beautiful things at our home, things that are colorful, bright and pretty. When we saw this idea for melted bead bowls, I knew we’d have to try them! I hope your family enjoys making them as much as mine did.


  • beads—a wide variety if you choose
  • an oven-proof bowl
  • Pam or grease for the bowl


  1. bowl 1Grease the oven-proof bowl and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Empty the beads into the bowl and push them down to the bottom, spreading them out until there is a single layer reaching up the sides.
  3. Place the bowl in the oven and "bake" it for about 15 minutes.
  4. bowl 2Once it's cooled, peel the bead bowl off of the oven-proof bowl; now you have a new, beautiful bowl!
  5. Can't wait to make more! Happy crafting!
