  • Scissors
  • Clear tape

Step 2

Download the PDF for the Creepy Lab Project Pattern. You will need 6 large square pegboards—some of the patterns require multiple 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.
