The Pond is Alive!

★★★★★ ★★★★★

With this terrific project, you create a whole scene and make the pond come to life with your Perler Bead creatures! The background picture of the pond is right here for you to download and print.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Magenta - 26
  • Hot Coral - 84
  • Red - 38
  • Cheddar - 46
  • Orange - 34
  • Yellow - 16
  • Kiwi Lime - 84
  • Dark Green - 33
  • Light Blue - 32
  • Purple - 32

  • White - 8

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

  • Cardboard
  • Craft glue
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the The Pond is Alive Project Pattern. You will use the small heart and small square pegboards for your bead projects. 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: Print out the pond scene background from the pdf. If you wish to make a sturdy picture to hang on the wall, glue the background print to cardboard. Arrange your bead animals in the scene and use craft glue to secure them in place.
