Aroma Bead Ornaments

As promised, I am posting the rest of the information on how to turn your Aroma Beads into ornaments.

After making the beads, choose metal cookie cutters in the shapes and sizes you want. For mine, I used Christmas Ornament shaped cutters.

Place the cookie cutters on a metal non-stick cookie sheet. Fill the cutters with a layer of beads. Make sure the bottom is completely covered. You will then bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 5-10 minutes. The beads will melt together making your ornament. Do not leave the beads unattended.

After taking them out of the oven, let them cool completely and then remove from the sheet and cutters. You can place in the freezer to expedite the process.

To finish them off, I used a nail to make a hole in the tops and put in an ornament hanger. You could also use string or ribbon.
