Perler Bead Fox Hairpin

These beads have been part of the craft world for years. I remember making things as a kid amazed at how they fused together when my mother ironed them. I wanted to share this with my daughter, but also wanted to update the designs to a more modern take. We made a fox, raccoon and a hedgehog. I’ve also included a couple of ideas of how to use the items once they have been made.

Perler Beads

Supplies:

Pegboard

Use your peg board to make your Perler bead design. The sky is the limit with the possibilities of designs. We created a fox, a raccoon and a hedgehog.

Lay out your design and iron it, according to the instructions provided with the beads.

To make the pendant, place a jump ring through the top center bead.

Hair Pin

Use E6000 to glue the Perler bead creation to the hair clip.

The designs can also be into a magnet.
