Hanukkah Fun

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Create these fun designs with Perler beads to celebrate Hanukkah—a dreidel cupcake topper, candies, and gelt. A fun activity for the whole family to celebrate the Festival of Lights!

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed for 1 of each design:

  • Creme - 22
  • Pastel Blue - 123
  • Light Blue - 75
  • Butterscotch - 13
  • Gold Metallic - 27
  • White - 77

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

  • Toothpicks
  • Craft glue
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Hanukkah Fun Project Pattern. You will use the large hexagon, small 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. 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: For the cupcake toppers, glue a toothpick to the back of the dreidel and insert into the cupcake.
