Step 2

Download the PDF for the Cool Christmas Project Pattern. You will need 4 large square pegboards—some of the patterns require 2 or all 4 of the pegboards assembled together as shown in the project sheet. Cut these patterns out and tape together in the same way. If you are using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size patterns underneath them. Place your beads on the pegboards as shown.

Step 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.

Step 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.
