Adventures in Perler Beads


Pixel Hair Bow

Pixel Hair Bow with clip hot glued to back.

The girls used glow in the dark Perler Beads too!

I have to admit that this was a craft that was a little tough for my little ones, it takes concentration, time and nimble fingers. The girls, 4 & 5, used preformed shapes to make their frog and dog. And I had to help finish them. I, on the other hand, used a grid to make my own designs, which was really fun.

Feel free to 'steal' the 'patterns' and have your own fun! Remember to iron both sides and never let a child handle an iron. (Common sense, I know.)

I hot glued a hair clip to the back of the bow and it's held up well. I hot glued magnets to the back of the 1up and Goomba to put on the fridge to hold up art. I want to try to make Rainbow Dash from My Little Ponies and if I ever get around to it, I'll post a pic!
