{DIY} Perler Bead Bracelets

DIY Perler Bead Bracelets | typical house catConfession time. Guys, I have been seriously obsessed with Perler beads lately. There is something very nostalgic for me about placing the beads on the peg board and then ironing them out. I could do it all day long, it’s like really inexpensive therapy. After making a lifetime supply of coasters, I finally moved on to my tried and true craft, jewelry. Today I’m featuring Perler bead bracelets, no iron required. Comeback throughout the rest of the week for more Perler bead jewelry tutorials. perler bead bracelet suppliesYou will need:

  1. Start by opening a jump ring and sliding a bead on.
  2. Close the jump ring.
  3. Add another jump ring to the same bead, before you close the jump ring, add another bead.
  4. Keep repeating the process until your bracelet is the desired length.
  5. Add a clasp.
  6. Make more.

  1. I do love this! And I can do it. 🙂 I’m not a fan of beaded jewelry unless you mix it with metal and this bracelet has the perfect amount of both.

  2. Wow – very inventive, amazing what you can make jewellery with. I am starting to get an eye for unusual items to use in jewellery making, love when I see people thinking outside the box. I’ve not seen those things for years lol I might have to go on a hunt and make some coasters I am in desperate need of lol
