Once you have the Perler beads placed where you like, carefully take a piece of wax paper and place it over the top of your Christmas design.
Now it’s time to ask an adult to heat the iron to medium heat. Medium heat works best for us, but be sure to do what works best for you!
An adult will need to gently iron the beads. Place the iron over the wax paper and begin to press down lightly. Be careful not to press down too hard, it can cause the beads to melt too much and give an overflowed effect.
Hold the iron in place for about 15-20 seconds depending on the heat your iron is producing.
Once your beads are totally melted on that side, take the iron and wax paper off of the beads carefully. If your beads aren’t totally melted together, just reapply the wax paper and go over them with the iron again.
Once that side has cooled enough to touch, carefully take them off of the tray. Turn your beads over to the unmelted side and place wax paper over that side. Then repeat the steps for melting your beads.
Once that side is melted and cooled, remove the wax paper and enjoy your beautiful Christmas Perler bead pieces.
