Fuse bead decorations for Rosh Hashanah
Posted 9 September, 2012on:
Fuse beads (hama beads, perler beads, whatever you want to call them) are awesome! We found a new source of beads, including brown ones (how did we ever manage without brown?) and have been trying out some new ideas. So, what can you do with fuse beads, other than vacuum them out of the carpet? I made these Rosh Hashanah decorations for our front screen door and they are a little kitschy but I’m pretty happy with them.
The apple was made on a round pegboard. The thing that looks like a furry red caterpillar is the pipecleaner (chenille stem) I used to attach it to the screen. I didn’t realise we had two not-quite-identical shades of red until I took this photo, the joys of mixing up two sets of beads from different manufacturers!
The honeycomb was made on the central part of a six-pointed star (magen david) pegboard.
I made the text on a square pegboard, and the shofar down one side of a heart-shaped pegboard. They are strung together with jewellery wire, and then onto a pipe cleaner.
So, come on over… 🙂
