Fuse beads

What you need: 

fuse beads, 


pair of tweezers, 

greaseproof paper or baking parchment, 

dry iron, 

squared paper, 



clothes pegs/pins, 

optionally paint

Draw a small motif on squared paper, e.g. a heart.

Place the fuse beads on the pegboard following this pattern.
When you have finished applying the beads, preheat the iron.

Put a piece of greaseproof paper on the beads (which are still on the pegboard). Iron the beads until they fuse under the paper. You can easily recognise that.

Turn off the iron and wait a minute. The beads are quite hot now.
Peel off the greaseproof paper and remove the beads from the pegboard.

Let your motif cool down and stick it to a clothes pin.

If you want, you can paint the clothes pin before applying the beads.
