Kites a-Flyin'

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Create a colorful collection of kites with Perler Beads! These make great suncatchers in a sunny window.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Magenta - 16
  • Red - 126
  • Hot Coral - 173
  • Cheddar - 254
  • Yellow - 114
  • Green - 180
  • Light Blue - 117
  • Pastel Lavender - 100
  • Purple - 129

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

  • Ribbons
  • Thread
  • Craft glue
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Kites a-Flyin' Project Pattern. You will use the large square, large star, and small star pegboards for your projects. If you’re using a clear pegboard, 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. 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: To create a kite tail, cut a length of ribbon and glue it to the kit. Glue the knots to the tail as shown in the photograph.

Step: 6

Use thread to attach the flag to the flagpole as shown here.
