Step: 2

CREATING THE DESIGN:
Download the PDF for the Mini Beads Beetles Project Pattern. Slide the actual-size pattern underneath the pegboard, and place your beads as shown.

Step: 3

FUSING THE DESIGN: An adult should do this step.
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. NOTE: Beads need heat for about 10 seconds per side to fuse evenly; it is possible some colors may need a little more time. Let the design cool.

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. When the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Step: 4

ASSEMBLY:
Mount your scrap fabric pieces into the 3 hoops, making sure the fabric is taut and that the screw is tightened. On the back, trim away the excess fabric by cutting at the edge of the hoop. Hot glue the beetles in place as shown.
