Line baking sheet with foil, arrange pony beads as you want them, CAREFULLY and SLOWLY place in preheated 375* oven, bake until desired consistency achieved. The longer you bake it, the flatter it will be.
Ellie and I made the Melted bead suncathers but the melting plastic smell is horrible, even when we did it outside on the grill. Plus i was paranoid about bpa, so we won't be doing this. It turned out OK. not as cute as it showed here for some reason.
