My daughter was given a pack of Hama melting beads recently which are lots of fun. I confess I also got rather hooked on them and 'borrowed' a handful to try moulding them in the oven. The result was these kitsch moulded characters which I made into some fun gift tags. I think the characters could also be stuck on to blank greeting cards or craft magnets to make some kitsch accessories around the home.

Lay out the silicone mould on a baking tray. Fill the moulds with Hama melting beads.

Put the tray in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20-30 minutes (or until fully melted).

Let the tray cool then pop out the plastic characters.
My beads melted up the side of the mould so left a rather wavy surface on the back of the robot. I trimmed these pieces off with scissors and gave the back a quick smooth off with sand paper to give a flat surface.
