Activity Overview

Create awesome bracelets out of Perler Beads. We use Perler beads all of the time. It is a great quiet time activity and we have accumulate a lot of adorable and creative beaded masterpieces over the years. This time, we were on a quest for creating an artsy perler bead project that had more of a purpose. These bracelets were just the thing! We can't wait to make more! Adult supervision is required for the use of an iron to fuse the beads.

Materials Needed

  • Perler Beads
  • Perler bead plates
  • Iron
  • Parchment Paper
  • Stretchy Jewelry cording

How to Make Them

  1. Use the widest perler bead plate that you have. We used a star and the diagonally held square.
  2. Create a design approximately 4-5 rows wide across the plate.
  3. Place a piece of parchment paper on to of the perler bead design and iron over the paper for about 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
  4. This ironing process will fuse the beads together.
  5. While the fused beads are still hot, take a scissors or other pointed object and widen the one hole on each end so that you can tie a piece of jewelry cording through it.
  6. Then quickly mold the bracelet to the side of a drinking glass and hold it until it is cooled.
  7. Lastly, measure the bracelet and cording and tie each end of the bracelet with cording to form
