Spinning Top

★★★★★ ★★★★★

The bright colors of this top whirl into a vivid rainbow when you spin the top. A quick and easy project--perfect for a birthday party activity!
Skill level: NONE

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Magenta - 26
  • Hot Coral - 34
  • Cheddar - 29
  • Kiwi Lime - 29
  • Light Blue - 28
  • Purple - 23

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

  • Toothpick
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Spinning Top Project Pattern. You will use the small hexagon pegboard for your project. 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. 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: Cut the points off the toothpick with the scissors. Insert the toothpick through the center bead so that it extends about 1/2 inch through the bottom. Spin the top and watch the colors fly!
