Additional Information

Step 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Orange - 275
  • Yellow - 51
  • Brown - 11
  • Purple - 27
  • Black - 78

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Paper bags - white or brown
  • Dye ink
  • Craft glue
  • Battery-powered flicker lights
  • Stones or sand

Step 2

Download the PDF for the Luminaria Project Pattern. You will use the large hexagon 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. 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 the fusing. 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: Decide where you want to position your pumpkin and witch hat on the luminaria bags and trace them lightly with a pencil. Cut the shape out of the bag about 1/2 inch inside the traced line. This will allow more light to shine through. Then glue your Perler piece in place.

Step 6

Use your favorite Halloween stamps and black ink to stamp your luminaria bags. Put stones or sand in the bottom of the bags to weigh them down. Place battery-operated flickering candles inside, then display after dark. Great for party decorations or a porch display for trick-or-treaters.
