Use Melty Beads, specially made pegboards and an iron to create fused designs, such as the winter snowflakes seen here!

Materials


Instructions


To create these designs, lay Melty Beads onto the pegboard shapes shown or create your own designs. Making snowflakes is a great time to talk about symmetry in nature.

To melt, follow the instructions included in your package, or read about the Basics of Melty Beads here!
