The Perler beads that are out now are way cooler than the ones when we were young. When I saw the new “shaped beads” I knew they were dying to be made into dangling earrings.

To make these you will need:

DIY Perler Bead Earring Patterns

  1. Lay out the design on the peg board.
  2. Cover with the waxed paper that comes with your beads.
  3. Iron gently until the beads appear fused together.
  4. CAREFULLY (beads will be HOT), remove the design from the pegboard.
  5. These designs are fragile, cover the side you did not iron with the waxed paper and iron that side as well. This will ensure your designs last much longer.
  6. Attach the earring findings using jump rings and glue as necessary.
