Melted Plastic bead Star Earrings

Celebrating the 4th with some big plastic star earrings!
Have you tried this? It is so easy and fun. Can be a bit smelly but recycling is recycling.
How to make recycled melted plastic bead earrings:

Place a cookie cutter on a piece of foil on your toaster tray.
Fill with plastic beads.
Bake until melted. The time will depend on how many beads and the size of the shape.
When cool pop from cookie cutter.
Drill holes in the plastic.
Link a earring wire to the star with a jump ring.
