Step 2

Download the Holiday Village Project Pattern. You will use the large square pegboard to create your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

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. On a 3-D project such as this, DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make assembly 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.

Step 5

ASSEMBLY:Slide the feet onto the bottom of each design to make it stand. Arrange the pieces of the village on a table top as desired. You can create a bed of artifical snow, or make Perler snow by mixing clear, white and toothpaste beads and spreading them on the table top. For the skating rink, try a round-cut piece of aluminum foil or plastic wrap stretched around a white piece of cardboard.
