louise and i made this bowl over easter weekend, based on several tutorials we found on pinterest. it is so easy to do: coat the inside of an oven-safe bowl in cooking spray, put one layer of "melty beads" inside (stack them up the sides) and put in a 350 degree oven. check regularly (our bowl took about 20 minutes). contrary to what you may think, the melted plastic does not even smell that bad. next, we want to try a black-and-white version of this.
