I've never used enamel dots, but I seen how to make your own on pinterest and a FB group I'm in, and thought I would give it a try.
I bought some perler beads at walmart and some parchment paper at the dollar store and gave it a try.
Stood the beads all on end on baking sheet. Put them in a preheated oven at 300 degrees and baked for between 25-35 minutes.
My red ones didn't work and my black had dimples in them. I'm thinking of trying them by theirselves and seeing if they just need to bake longer.
Now I'll have to find fun ways to use them.
