This isn't a very complex project but it is pretty time consuming, so think about that before you start!
Step 1: What You Will Need.
You will need:
- perler beads (you can get these at Wal-Mart)
- an iron
- quad ruled paper (optional)
- wax paper
- peg board (you can find this with the perler beads at Wal-Mart)
- wall tacks
Step 2: Find a Design.
Draw your beading design or find one online, if you want to draw your design you can use quad ruled paper which is basically paper with small squares on it.
Step 3: Start by Beading From the Outside In.
Make sure to pay attention to where you put each bead, because if you mess it up you have to start all over again.
Step 4: Turn on Your Iron.
Keep your iron on the beads for a minute to thirty seconds, move it around GENTLY in a circular motion.
Let it cool down before removing the wax paper.
Step 5: Glue the Wall Tacks to the Back of the Perler Bead Design.
Super glue works best for putting the tacks on the perler beads.
This took me an hour or so, but they look really cute so I don't mind, there also perfect for hanging necklaces on...
Also be careful when doing this project because irons and super glue aren't fun to touch.
