This butterfly seems to come to life when the sun shines on it. Kids love working with fuse beads and this colorful project is perfect for decorating the windows after a long and dreary winter. Kids are not limited to the suggested colors but can be creative and choose any combination they like.
For this project you will need:
- fuse beads in the colors of blue, pink, clear, and purple - 15 cm square fuse bead peg board - baking paper - iron - clear string for hanging
* Parents should assist the kids when ironing the fuse beads to prevent any injuries. Supervision is always recommended when using any hot item such as a glue gun or iron around kids.
1. Print out the pattern and use it as a guide for placing the beads on the peg board. 2. Once the butterfly is complete, place a piece of baking paper over the figure. Heat up the iron to a cotton setting and then iron over the paper. This will melt the beads together. 3. Let the butterfly dry about 3 minutes and then remove the paper. Now the butterfly can also be carefully removed. Attach a clear string for hanging.
