Create these fun veggie stakes to mark what you planted in each row of your vegetable garden. They are quick and easy with Perler Beads!

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Red - 204
  • Orange - 120
  • Creme - 5
  • Yellow - 57
  • Cheddar - 8
  • Green - 29
  • Dark Green - 268

  • Rust - 7
  • Tan - 12
  • Light Brown - 15

  • Black - 3
  • White - 26

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

  • Raffia ribbon
  • Glue - durable for outside use
  • Wooden skewers or pencils
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Veggie Patch Project Pattern. You will use the large square and small circle 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. 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: Put two 12 inch lengths of raffia ribbon together and tie a bow. Trim to the right size. Use glue to attach the bow to your veggie piece. Apply glue to the edge of a skewer or pencil the length needed to attach your vegetable piece. Carefully press the glued skewer to the back of your veggie. Allow to dry.
