Melted Bead Flower Lights

Check out these fabulous flower solar lights from Instructables user Shomo09!  Plain path lights get a colorful makeover with the addition of a plastic cover – a cover made from melted pony beads.  You will definitely want to buy a pizza pan to use for this project – don’t use your good one!  Once you’ve finished using it to melt the beads you should no longer use it for preparing food.  (But you can use it to create magnetic toy storage!)  It is also suggested that you do this project outdoors on a gas grill rather than in your oven to reduce your exposure to melting plastic fumes.  [how to makemelted bead solar light covers]
