Step: 2

CREATING THE DESIGN:
Download the PDF for the Beach Cottage Project Pattern. Assemble 2 large square pegboards as shown to create your project pieces, placing them on one of the large pieces of cardboard on a heat-safe surface that you can later use for fusing. Cut out and tape together the pattern sections. If you are using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

FUSING THE DESIGN: An adult should do this step.
For this project, we recommend our Tape Method for Fusing Large Projects (you can find it here on Perler.com under Projects & Inspiration). If you are more comfortable with our standard fusing instructions, please continue below.

Be sure you have placed one of the large cardboard pieces underneath the pegboards. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the design. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. NOTE: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly; it is possible some colors may need a little more time. Let the design cool.

Remove the paper from the bead design. Place the second large piece of cardboard on top so the design is sandwiched between the two cardboard pieces. Flip the design over and remove the pegboards to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. When the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Step: 4

ASSEMBLY:
Glue the 2nd roof edge over the first. Glue the anchor in position as shown. To make the heart banner, glue the hearts to a piece of the string with small spaces between them. Tie the ends through the roof beads and secure on the back.

Insert the tabs at the bottom of the cottage into the slots behind the path on the base. Insert the surfboard in the last slot of the base at left. Place the chair on the right side of the base. If you feel it's needed, add a touch of hot glue during assembly (adults only, please!).
