    Post your Perler Beads designs!

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Adult...94486950703800

    Perler beads are super easy to use. You can buy 11,000 of them for ~$15.00 at your local craft store.
    All you need are the beads, some reusable ironing paper that comes with the beads, an iron, and a base to add them to.
    They're great for making magnets, Christmas tree ornaments, or larger art pieces you can frame and hang on your wall!
    Lots of people use them to make designs from video game pixel art. What design ideas can you come up with?

    Here are some sources of inspiration to help you get started:

    I love these! A lot of people do their favorite characters "Mega Man" style with them.

    I spent eight hours making this for my brother for Christmas last year. It took two and a half hours to iron and then I cut out a foam core base to attach it to for additional strength. I found the design doing a Google image search though. Not my original idea. I am going to make myself one and tweak it a bit. I want mine to have Princess Peach.

    Edited to add pictures of my son's He-Man and Battlecat. He made stands for them to stand on their own too, but I couldn't find them to take a picture of them. Notice how he designs the characters so He-Man can wear a shield on his back and grasp weapons. I think that is amazing for a kid who just turned eight.

    Finished my brother's birthday gift, I love how it turned out. Someone had a tutorial online on how to do the shield and sword. The background is a map modge podged to canvas and I painted the sides black to give it a crisp edge.
