I'm making a "Darth Vader" (ish) Christmas tree. I got a little carried away when I bought the tree and also purchased a few little silver gaudy ornaments. I couldn't resist the shiny.
The "Darth" parts are to be made out of perler beads. I wanted to continue the theme/look and decided that some of the ornaments could also be Tie fighters with perler wings to match.
- glue gun
- parchment paper
- perler beads (good selection at Joanns)
- black white checkered
- smaller silver/grey ornaments

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Construct
- 2 wings
- 2 joints
- 1 front window
If you are not familiar with perler beads, essentially you are placing beads on a peg board and melting them into place with an iron. Tutorials can be found on youtube <https://youtu.be/nvNde93w75g>
Step 2: Essemble
- window first to orient and center everything else to.
- last attach wings. (NOTE: make sure the wings are lined up. My first had them rotated off from each other)
