About: Industrial Design student at Eindhoven University of Technology

In this instructable, I'm gonna show you how to make a bracelet out of perler beads.
It's fun to make and nice to give away as a present.
If you have made this instructable, I would love to see pictures.

Step 1: Materials

What you'll need:
-a little charm
-elastic cord
-perler beads

Step 2: Making the Bracelet

choose the colour of perler beads you want to use, I've used dark and light green.
Wrap the elastic cord around your wrist 6 times and cut it off.
Knot the charm to the elastic cord.
Add three perler beads, coloured dark, light, light.(for a different pattern, choose another order.)
Take the cord and pull it through the dark bead.
Add a dark bead and pull the cord through the light bead.
Repeat this for the whole bracelet till it fits.

Step 3: Finishing the Bracelet

Take the begin and the end together.
Pull the cord through the light bead on the other side.
Back to the other side, pull the cord through the dark bead.
Back again to the other side, pull the cord through the dark bead.
Using this technique, pull the cord through the light bead, light bead, dark bead, make a knot and add a little dab of glue.
Let the glue dry, cut off, the cord.
Your bracelet is ready to wear!
