These are so pretty and ridiculously easy and inexpensive!
It's a fun activity for kids, too, if you let them design the colors and patterns of the beads. Just make sure a grown up does the baking because the plastic gets HOT!

Step 1: What You Need
- Cheapy plastic 'pony' beads (available at craft stores for around $5 for a pound)
- A cookie cutter and cookie sheet or muffin tins or other shape nonstick metal cooking vessel (it doesn't ruin the pan.. you can still use it for food later)
- an oven, set to 400°
- Jewelry wire, or glass or metal beads and ribbon
