Play Ball!

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Decorate your school locker, your fridge, anything that is metal with these cool sports balls you create with Perler beads. Make your favorite: football, basketball, baseball, or soccer!
Skill level: NONE

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • White - 186
  • Black - 80
  • Orange - 114
  • Light Brown - 43
  • Red - 22

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here.

Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Play Ball Project Pattern. You will use the small hexagon pegboard to create your projects. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

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. 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.
