Download the PDF for the Clock and Mirror Project Pattern. You will use the large hexagon, large circle, and large square pegboards for your projects. If you’re using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place all the beads for the design.
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.
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.
CLOCK ASSEMBLY: Insert the clock movement through the center opening in the clock face. Place the clock face into the feet as shown.
MIRROR ASSEMBLY: Glue the small round mirror to the center of your bead circle. Randomly add adhesive gems as desired. Place the finished mirror into the feet as shown.
