By:

This Summer Flower Coaster Set from Perler Beads is so easy to make!  Gather the kids and create these fun outdoor summer coasters with fun Perler Beads patterns like these.  These are great for outdoor summer gatherings!

Summer Flower Coaster Set

Materials:

  • Large Basic Shapes Pegboards: 5 Ct
  • 1,000 Pack Perler Beads in Hot Coral, Yellow, Kiwi Lime, Light Blue, Purple, Black, White (2 bags of white, 1 bag of the rest of the colors)
  • Ironing Paper (6 sheets)
  • Bead Tweezer Plus
  • Household Glue
  • Sheet of cork
  • Pattern


Instructions:

  1. Download the Flower Coaster Set Project Pattern. Use the large circle pegboard for your project. If you’re using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place all the beads for the design.
     
  2. Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Let the design cool.
     
  3. 
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. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboard and ironing paper are reusable.
     
  4. Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Depending on the size of the project, additional heating time may be required. Since you are working on a 3-D project, DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make assembly more challenging.
     
  5. Coaster Assembly: Cut out circles of cork to match the size of the designs. Using regular household glue, attach a piece of cork to the bottom of each coaster.
