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.

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.
