It’s no secret we love Perler Beads around here. All three of my kids love creating and then playing with their creations. We have numerous hand made Perler Bead toys! We have recently added a Perler Bead Alphabet set to our collection!
I spent many summers as a kid ironing fusible plastic beads like these onto heart and star shaped pegboards, but when I came across this perler bead set recently, I just had to try a grown up take on the material. Pixel art and 8-bit designs are perfect for translating into perler bead projects because each bead is like a pixel, so I designed simple pixel versions of different styles of cameras. The end result is a coaster set that still has a sense of whimsy to match the fun heat-fused bead technique! Make the whole set to use in your home or wrap them up as a gift for the photography enthusiast in your life!
