Perler Bead Bracelet Jewelry Craft for Kids
I have a fun (and easy) craft for tweens today that they can show off to all their friends. These Perler bead bracelets are colorful and can be done in an hour or two on a quiet weekday evening. My daughter likes to sit at the counter while I’m making dinner, making it the perfect time to set her up with a craft and chat about our day. Make these bracelets in a rainbow of colors,team colors,or school spirit colors!
Use your tweezers to carefully pick up one bead at a time and place it onto your pegboard. You’ll want the beads to stay in a space of 29 beads long and 3 beads wide.
Make a pattern with the beads in your long and skinny space on the pegboard.
Once your bead pattern is finished, carefully place a piece of ironing paper over top the beads and iron (no water or steam) for several seconds or until you can see the beads start to fuse together.
Remove the iron and carefully pull the paper back off the pegboard (careful this will be hot) and peel the beads off the paper and immediately press around the Mason jar.
Once your beads have cooled a touch, remove from the Mason jar and place the two ends together overlapping and hold until completely cooled.
Now the bracelets will be ready to wear!
