Melting the Plastic

1. Take the toaster oven outside and heat to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt plastic outside in order to avoid exposing yourself to harmful fumes.

2. Place the metal container in the toaster oven for three to four minutes. Increase heat in 25 degree intervals until the plastic is completely melted. Different types of plastic have different melting points.

3. Remove the metal container from the toaster oven using protective gloves or oven mitts once the plastic is completely melted.

4. Pour the melted plastic into a mold using a wooden stick. Allow the plastic to completely cool before taking it out of the mold.While cooling punch in a whole for thread of the necklace.
