Melting Beads Santa Claus or Father Christmas

No home with kids should be without a Santa or Father Christmas. This is a fun craft for kids to do on a cold December afternoon. Once they are finished, let them hang their project on the family tree for everyone to see or they can even give it as a gift to someone special. This craft takes up to 1 1/2 hours but experienced kids should usually be able to complete it within an hour.



Fuse Beads Father Christmas

For this project you will need:

- fuse beads in the colors of red, white, grey, flesh and black
- 15 cm square fuse bead peg board (about 30 x 30 pegs)
- baking paper
- iron

Ages 8 and older

Fuse Bead Father Christmas Pattern






1. Print out the pattern and use it as a guide for placing the beads on the peg board.
2. Once the figure is complete, place a piece of baking paper over it. Heat up the iron to a cotton setting and then iron over the paper. This will melt the beads together.
3. Let the Father Christmas dry about 3 minutes and then remove the paper. Now the figure can also be carefully removed. Attach a clear string for hanging.
