DIY Melted Perler Bead Jewelry. As I’ve posted before, Perler Beads are wonderful for children of an appropriate age because they are big enough for them to thread shoelaces through to make jewelry (one of my favorite small gifts is a tackle box with Perler Beads, shoelaces and the child’s name written with puffy paint on top). 6000 Perler Beads from Amazon (with pegboards) is about $9 here (NO AFFILIATE LINKS). Tutorial from Craft and Creativity here.
This blog is for my crafting alter ego. I did lots of crafts with my very artistic mother growing up and continue doing them with kids now. I love really good kids' crafts that hold their attention and mine.
