Pattern for fuse bead dreidels
Posted 2 January, 2012on:
I bought a big container of fuse beads for the whole family to play with over the holidays. I think these are also marketed as Perler beads or Hama beads, although mine are the ever popular “no name” variety. They are colourful plastic beads which you arrange into patterns on specially designed boards and then fuse together with the heat of an iron.
Here is our first foray into Jewish fuse bead design: fuse bead dreidels for Chanukah.
Our beads came with small boards, for example the square is only 14 beads wide x 14 beads tall. But this is enough to make some cute little decorations which we can either leave on tables or blu-tac to the windows next Chanukah.
Here is one prior to being ironed together.
And here is our Dreidel pattern for fuse beads.
