Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Beach Buggies Project Pattern. You will use the following pegboards: daisy, dolphin, car, small circle, small square, and large square. If you’re using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Now place all the beads for your project. To create the waves, you will need to assemble TWO large square pegboards as shown of page 4 of the Project Patterns. Cut out the two individual halves of the wave charts and tape them together so that you can see the whole design at once.

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 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.
