Iron-on beads #6: Making 3D objects with iron-on beads
I have worked with iron-on beads several times. Actually just 2D, flat. On Pinterest I came across all kinds of 3D objects made of iron-on beads, I wanted to try this too. Today my (sometimes bad) experiences, tips and successful projects.
The iron-on bead patterns I used all come from Pinterest or I came up with myself. If I came up with this myself, I'll add it. You can find the other patterns on my Pinterest board “iron beads”. I have put them together for you there.
Let me start with my two failed projects. I found a nice pattern of Pickachu and Charmander from Pokemon. The intention of this pattern was that everything would fit together like a puzzle. Unfortunately, when ironing the beads, the beads melted so much that I could no longer put them together :-(. Lots of frustration, tried with glue and double-sided tape, but nothing helped. Below is the result...
Successful 3D iron-on bead projects
Fortunately, I also found 3D patterns for iron-on beads that worked for me :-). These patterns work with a kind of stacking technique instead of with puzzle pieces that have to fit exactly. You create the desired patterns with iron-on beads and then glue each layer together with all-purpose glue. Nice and simple! Below you will find my successful 3D iron-on bead objects.
