Project Instructions

  1. Create your DAD on the large pegboard using colors of choice. Make sure that the A is upside down, so that after the DAD is fused together, the A will be right side up on the front of the frame.  The fused side is the back!
  2. ADULT:  After reading instructions on packaging, use iron to fuse beads together.
  3. Glue photos to back and cover with piece of construction paper to finish.
  4. Create small stands for back, fusing 4 rows of beads together 8 beads wide, times 2.  ADULT:  Use iron to fuse stands together.  
  5. Glue stands to back bottom of frame to hold.


Be sure when you create your image that you will be ironing on the front side, so the "A" will need to be upside down.
