Step 1:  Rub or spray some cooking spray onto your shamrock cookie cutters.  This will help release the suncatchers from the cookie cutters after they are done melting.

Step 2: Fill the cookie cutter with roughly one layer of pony beads.

Step 3:  Bake the suncatchers in the oven at 350 degrees / until melted or you can bake these out on the grill if it’s a nice day. Make sure to watch these closely so they don’t over heat and burn.

Step 4:  After the shamrocks have cooled, push them out of the cookie cutters.  Next, take a drill with a small drill bit or a hand drill and drill a hole to hang.
