Kid Décor with Perler Beads

Perler Bead DecorLevel: Your kids can do it!
Designed by: Terri O

These kits can be found at most craft stores and discount stores where the toys are. My kids have always loved making objects using the templates or just creating on their own. One important note: The beads are tiny and should not be around small children. Also, because you need an iron to melt the pieces together you should be there with the kids who are old enough to do it. Be sure to read all the manufacturer warnings.

Project Instructions:

  1. Create your design with the Perler Beads following manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Paint a wood frame and cut out a piece of heavy cardboard to fit inside.
  3. Mount your finished bead design on the cardboard. I used adhesive dots.
