Hanukkah Fuse Bead Patterns

Hanukkah Fuse Bead Patterns
Here's an original idea for Hanukkah! Our Hanukkah fuse bead patterns can be used with Hama Beads, Perler Beads or other own-brand fusible beads. Once ironed, you can use the designs as hanging decorations (thread a ribbon or cord through at the top), a mobile, badges, embellishments for greetings cards, and in many more ways.

Use your paint markers to trace the designs and color them in.
