Hot Chili Peppers

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Hot-cha-cha! These smiling chili peppers make a fun garland for a south-of-the-border fiesta or Cinco de Mayo celebration. Super easy and quick! Designed By Karen Benvenuti.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Red - 131
  • Cheddar - 7
  • Dark Green - 33
  • Black - 6

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

  • Red cord - optional
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Hot Chili Peppers Project Pattern. You will use the large hexagon pegboard for your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place the beads for the project.

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

ASSEMBLY: If you wish to make a garland, thread ribbon through two open bead holes at the top of each chili pepper and space them as desired.
