Project Instructions

  1. Working on flat surface, create design by placing beads one by one on Perler® pegboard. Follow patterns or be creative!
  2. ADULT*: Preheat dry household iron to medium setting. When carrying bead design to iron, be careful not to tip or bump beads from pegboard! Cover beads with ironing paper. Keep iron level & gently iron beads in circular motion for about 10 seconds** to fuse beads evenly. When ironed properly, beads still have open center.
  3. Once cooled, peel off ironing paper. Lift design from pegboard & fl ip design over onto ironing surface. Cover with ironing paper & iron other side to fuse evenly. Pegboard & ironing paper are reusable.


* WARNING: Ironing must be done by adult only. Some irons may emit steam. Please keep children at a safe distance.** When working on 3D projects, BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERHEAT BEADS or center of beads will close and make assembly more challenging.
