  1. Download the Colorful Plant Sticks Project Pattern. Use the cupcake and large square pegboards for your projects. 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 pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

    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.
  4. Assembly: Glue a plant stick to the back of each of the bead designs.

    For the cupcake, accordion-fold a 4" x 8 1/2" piece of white paper, then bring the ends together and glue to form a pinwheel. Glue the pinwheel to the back of the cupcake.

    Decorate your bead designs and plant sticks with heart stickers, then place the finished plant sticks in a bouquet or potted plant.
