See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here.
CREATING THE DESIGN: Download the PDF for the Fidget Spinners Project Pattern. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads as shown.
FUSING THE DESIGN: An adult should do this step. 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. NOTE: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly; it is possible some colors may need a little more time. Let the design cool.
Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. When the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.
ASSEMBLY: An adult should do this step. Use the hot glue gun to secure the ball bearing in the center open space, and a hex nut in each of the three outer open spaces. Then, spin away!
