Download the PDF for the Mom's Picture Display Project Pattern. You will use the large square, small square, small circle, and small star pegboards to create your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.
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.
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.
ASSEMBLY: Trim and tape photos to the circle, square, and star shapes.
Create hangers with the plastic cord and thread a heart bead on each one. Tape the hangers to the photo frames and then to the main panel.
Create a curved hanger from the wire, threading beads onto it. Hook the ends of the wire through the beads on the main panel.
