Fuse bead heaven at our home – DIY fuse bead lanterns & crown

(Okay, so that last post was supposed to be called ”Fused bead lamps”, because this one is about the fused bead lanterns! But I’ve corrected it now)

I don’t know how many hours I spent sorting the fuse beads according to color, but it was so worth it!

And I actually think it can be sort of relaxing to sort the beads, so win-win all around?

Once the beads were sorted, I made strips of fused beads about 7 beads wide and different lengths. I made six pieces for each lantern.

I glued together all six pieces using a hot glue gun.

The lanterns are perfect for this season! They’re colorful and pretty in the evenings, and bring both light and color to our home before the big Christmas ornament explosion. This picture is during daytime, when I hadn’t yet ”lit” the lights (I forgot to say – I use battery driven tealights inside these, so they’re really safe and you can place them almost anywhere in your home) – hopefully I’ll get around to taking pictures of them during the dark hours too, because they are just so lovely!

I also made a crown that I used for Halloween, using the same method. I made the parts of the crown separately and glued them together using a hot glue gun. So easy, and so much fun to do! And it’s always fun to wear crowns!
