About this Project

Create lemon slices with Perler beads that you can use as coasters, magnets or even ornaments! A fun project kids and parents can enjoy together.

  • 1
    Choose the Circle pegboard.
  • 2
    Use your tweezers to place your beads on the board according to the design pattern.
  • 3
    Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface.
  • 4
    Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project.
  • 5
    Do not press down with the iron. As the beads begin to fuse, you will see the circles of the beads start to show through the paper. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Let the design cool.
  • 6
    Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool completely.
  • 7
    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. Depending on the size of the project, additional heating time may be required.
