Camping Fun

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Designed By Holly Craft

Have fun creating this wilderness camping scene in Perler Beads, complete with a tent, campfire, pine trees, and a mama and baby bear!

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Red - 14
  • Rust - 286
  • Cranapple - 40
  • Orange - 17
  • Yellow - 27
  • Gold Metallic - 10
  • Light Green - 22
  • Dark Green - 299
  • Tan - 126
  • Light Brown - 4
  • Brown - 323
  • Black - 200

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

  • Tan chenille stem
  • Glitter
  • Craft glue
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Camping Fun Project Pattern. You will use the large square and large hexagon peg boards for your project. If you’re using a clear peg board, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place all the beads for the design.

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. Note: for the fire piece, sprinkle a little glitter on the beads before fusing. 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 step two. 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: Trees: Insert the tree trunks into the slots in the feet.

Step: 6

Bear: Insert the bear’s two lower paws into the two larger brown feet.

Step: 7

Tent: Attach the three long feet at right angles to the lower horizontal edge of the tent.

Step: 8

Campfire: Insert the base of the campfire into the X-shaped foot. Thread brown beads onto two 2 inch long pieces of chenille stem. Bend the ends of the chenille to secure the beads. Glue these logs across the base of the campfire.
