Oh, and the things you can do … with beads. And I’m referring to those beads that are iron-able and shape-able into pretty much any thing you fancy, called perler beads.
Creations Made with Perle Beads
After you’ve made Zhu zhu pet food from beads, and a beaded jewelry set with necklace & bracelet for Barbie or Bratz, and you & the kids still haven’t ran out of steam, .. then here are some more Perler beading ideas for you:
- Funky Bead Coasters for your kitchen or to cheer you up at your desk
- Bead Frame (s) to match the coasters, also for your desk
- Beads Ornaments, balls or stars, for the Christmas Tree of Year-round
- Doll Rug for Barbie’s house ( I like that … very creative)
These colorful shapes are lovely, aren’t they? These perler beads make for a lovely no-mess afternoon crafting, and I highly recommend them. They are inexpensive and you can order online. You’ll need to buy 3 things: Perler beads, pin board shapes, and iron-on sheets.
