Christmas Stars For Outdoor or Indoor Tree Decorations

6 Materials
25 Days

Pony Bead Stars are made by using STAR shaped cake pans, cookie cutters, and cupcake molds for a starry starry daytime and night time show for Christmas.

These are most of my molds.

Stars are as small as 1.5" as large as 12".

After using the metal cake pans a few times you will need to use SOS pad to scour the points and edges. If you don't clean shape on occasion the melted beads will stick. Silicone molds no problem.

Fill your shape with beads to cover the surface of your shape. Set oven at 375 degrees, bake for about 45 minutes. Top is beads befrore melting, bottom is almost done.

By filling the outer star you save beads.

Filling the outer and inner stars you get 2 stars.

Translucent (glitter or regular) pony beads work best but for color sake I will use opaque beads too. BUT Never use metalic pony beads, they just don't melt right.

Glow in the dark beads don't glow once they are melted.

Pink glitter, translucent, and opaque

some before and after

These are the lights I use to make the stars more visible at night.
