Okay folks. Today we have a perler bead craft for momma! If you’ve been following the last few months then you know that our boys have been on a perler bead bender. They’ve been making 3D Mario Figures and Robot Key Chains and Perler Bead Bubble Wands! Well I thought that it was high time that I made something for ME. Ha ha! So I came up with this Feather Perler Bead Necklace that I absolutely LOVE!
Supplies that you will need:
large perler bead peg board
23 light blue
5 mint beads
7 salmon beads
49 glow-in-the-dark blue beads
small silver feather (optional)
How to make this feather perler bead necklace:
1: working from the corner of the peg board, begin to build the feather.
2: continue to build the feather from the top down until completed.
3: iron both sides of the design flat. Fasten the jump ring to the top bead and attach to the chain. If the hole in the top bead has been melted closed use a needle to poke a hole for the jump ring.
Fun right?! And it’s GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!! I love, love, love it!
I added this little feather to the top to add some interest. It’s from my jewellery making stash but I am sure that you can find something similar on eBay.
I love getting in on the fun creative crafting energy that my boys have. And they love crafting as a family. It’s a win, win. The fun never ends around here. You can bet that there will be more perler bead crafts coming soon!
Crafting essentials for perler bead projects:
- We love using this flat bottom dry iron (aff link) for perfect bead melting every time.
- These perler bead tweezers (aff link) are ideal for grasping and picking up beads.
- This Perler Bead Peg Board system (aff link) is our favorite because it interlocks together for larger projects.
- These stackable storage containers (aff link) make keeping our perler beads organized and tidy easy.
