Skill level: NONE

  • Dark Green - 118

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

  • Quick-drying adhesive
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the 3D Picnic Faves Project Pattern. You will use the small circle, large circle, and large hexagon pegboards to create your 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. 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 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

HOT DOG ASSEMBLY: Bun: Align then glue the Bun #1 layers together. Aligning the top rows, add a #2 piece on each end, then a #3 piece.

Step: 6

Hotdog: Glue the Hotdog #1 layers together in a similar manner, rotating the layers a half bead to create a zigzag of mustard with the yellow bead. Add four #2 pieces on each end, then a #3 piece.

Step: 7

Glue the hotdog onto the bun, then glue loose beads of white, red, pastel green, and dark green to look like onions and relish.

Step: 8

WATERMELON ASSEMBLY: Aligning the bite areas, glue the two #1 pieces together, then glue a #2 piece on each side.

Step: 9

PIE A LA MODE ASSEMBLY: Glue the filling layers onto the base. Glue the top crust onto the pie slice, then the crust edge in place.

Step: 10

Standing the trim piece on its side, glue it to the crust edge.

Step: 11

Stack and glue the ice cream pieces from large to small, then glue to the top of the pie. Glue the fruit slice in place.
