Making of spinning perler bead hoops

Start by designing the number and size of circles. I decided on 5 rings in the colors of the rainbow, each arranged every 3 beads on a round board.

Choose the colors of your rims and arrange them on a round board. Leave one space free, because there will be a bead in it, arranged in the other way, so that the thread can get through.

Once you complete all the circles, iron through the baking paper. Set the iron to maximum temperature and do a few pulls to connect the beads.

Then remove the hoops from the board, in the missing place insert the bead set the other way and iron the connection. Also iron the beads on the other side, because the hoops should be firmly connected to withstand wind.

The last step is to assemble to wind spinner. Start threading from the smallest circle, then a pair of transparent beads and another hoop.
