Download the PDF for the Flower Pot Project Pattern. You will use the flower and large circle pegboards for your project. 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.
ASSEMBLY: Stack then glue together the first three pieces you made in the order shown.
Stack then glue together all the pieces you made from the pattern on page 5 of the pattern sheet in the order shown. Add piece D at the bottom.
Place the flower stems into the slots of piece A.
Fit the assembled section from step 3 inside the flower pot. Push it inside until just the one or two rows of dark green beads shows at the top.
