Biggie Beads Sun Catcher

★★★★★ ★★★★★

This cheerful sun catcher is easy for youngsters to make with Perler's Biggie Beads. Just add a piece of ribbon and hang it in your favorite window.

Step: 1

Biggie Bead Colors Needed:

  • Yellow - 70
  • Orange - 20
  • Black - 7

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

  • Ribbon for the hanger
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Biggie Beads Suncatcher Project Pattern. You will use the Biggie Beads pegboard to create your project. Slide the actual-size pattern underneath the pegboard, then 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. 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 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 20-30 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: Thread the ribbon through the top bead and knot the end. Hang in your favorite window!
