1. Download the Holiday Village Project Pattern. Use the large square 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. Cover the completed design with the ironing paper. Keeping the iron level, gently iron the beads in a circular motion for about 10 seconds to fuse the beads evenly. Ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. On a 3-D project such as this, DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make assembly difficult. Warning: Parents—the ironing must be done by an adult only. Some irons may emit steam. Please keep children at a safe distance.

3. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Lift your design from the pegboard; flip the design over and repeat step #2. Your pegboard and ironing paper are reusable.

4. Slide the “feet” onto the bottom of each design to make it stand. Arrange the pieces of the village on a table top as desired. You can create a bed of artificial snow, or make Perler “snow” by mixing clear, white and toothpaste beads and spreading them on the table top. For the skating rink, try a round-cut piece of aluminum foil or plastic wrap stretched around a white piece of cardboard.
