If you have children or grandchildren then chances are you have Perler beads at your house. Perler beads are those small multi-colored plastic beads that come in a big tub of about 10,000. They usually come with forms so that you can make all sorts of different shapes like stars or ponies by fusing the plastic beads with a heated iron. They are a great craft item to have on hand for those stay at home from school days or when a big group of kids is visiting.

Most people use Perler beads the standard way, but there are lots of other things to do with the beads. Here are 3 fun and fabulous projects made with Perler beads that will keep you and your children entertained for hours.

* Please note that these crafts are not recommended for young children and an adult should always be present when doing them.

Perler bead bowl

Some important safety tips when making Perler Bead Bowls:

  • Always have an adult present when doing this craft. It is not recommended for young children.
  • Always bake the bowl in a well ventilated kitchen with windows open and the kitchen fan going. I have never noticed fumes when baking this, but I would think that fumes are emitted and that they are not healthy. I do not let my daughter in the kitchen when this bowl is baking.
  • These bowls are not meant for food storage. They are for decorative purposes only.
  • The bead bowls are extremely hot when they come out of the oven. DO NOT touch them until they are cool.

Perler Bead Bowls are fun and easy to make. All you need are a few supplies and an oven. The bowls make great and useful inexpensive gifts for friends and family. For Perler Bead Bowls you'll need:

  • Perler Beads
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Oven-safe bowl or dish
  • Paper Towel
  1. Preheat your oven to 400º fahrenheit. Meanwhile, prepare your oven-safe bowl by pouring a little bit of oil on a paper towel and coating the inside of the bowl. Make sure the entire inside of the bowl is coated. The oil keeps the beads from slipping and makes it easier to take the bead bowl out when finished.
  2. Pour the beads into the bowl and then start gently using your fingers or knuckles to push the beads up the sides of the bowl, making sure the layer of beads is only one bead thick. You'll find a few stray beads. Just push those gently in. If you want the bowl to go higher up the sides, add more beads and continue pressing them in. When you are happy with the way it looks, it's ready to go in the oven. The beads stay where they are because of the oil.
  3. Put the prepared dish in the heated oven. Initially set the timer for 5 minutes and then check on the bowl. You will see the beads getting shiny and starting to melt. It needs to look like it's dripping before it can be taken out. Once you see the dripping, the beads will be fused. Keep checking on it frequently so it does not melt too much. The finished bowl in the photos took 12 minutes to bake.
  4. When you are happy with the way it looks, take the bowl out of the oven and put it on a cooling rack to cool. DO NOT touch the bead bowl yet. It will be extremely hot and you will burn yourself. Don't forget to turn the oven off.
  5. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes. Before you attempt to take it out, make sure it is cool enough to handle. Do not let it cool completely or it will be harder to get out of the bowl.
  6. Start peeling the Perler Bead Bowl away from the sides of the oven-safe dish. With a little maneuvering it will come out. Sometimes a dull knife or a spoon will help the stubborn areas.
  7. Let it cool completely and you have a beautiful bowl.

Melted perler bead bracelet

Some important safety tips when making Melted Perler Bead Bracelets:

  • Always have an adult present when doing this craft. It is not recommended for young children.
  • Always bake the beads in a well ventilated kitchen with windows open and the kitchen fan going. I have never noticed fumes when baking this, but I would think that fumes are emitted and that they are not healthy. I do not let my daughter in the kitchen when the beads are baking.
  • The beads are extremely hot when they come out of the oven. DO NOT touch them until they are cool.

This is a little twist on just stringing the Perler beads. These beads are melted a little bit first, then beaded. Melting them gives them bit of a shine and makes them flatter and thinner. They almost look like buttons. To make the Melted Perler Bead Bracelet you'll need an oven and the following supplies:

  • Perler Beads
  • Elastic Cord
  • Baking/Cookie sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Glue
  1. Preheat your oven to 350º fahrenheit.
  2. Cover the baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and start placing the beads down. Stand the beads up so that the hole is facing upwards. Leave a bit of space between each one because they spread when they melt.
  3. Carefully place the baking sheet with the beads in the oven, taking care not to knock the beads over.
  4. Don't leave the kitchen. It only takes about 3 minutes for these to melt. Keep a close eye on the beads. Once they are done the way you like them, take them out of the oven and put the baking sheet on a cooling rack. DO NOT touch the beads yet. They are extremely hot. Don't forget to turn off the oven.
  5. Let them cool for about 10 minutes. They will come right off the parchment paper, ready to be strung.
  6. Cut a piece of elastic cord approximately 9 inches long and start beading.
  7. Once you have your desired length beaded, tie the two ends together with multiple knots. I tie at least 3 knots just to be safe. Clip off the loose ends of the cord and put a dab of glue on the knot for extra hold. Let the glue dry.
  8. You now have a gorgeous bracelet!

Perler bead earbud covers

Some important safety tips when making Perler Bead Earbud Covers:

  • Always have an adult present when doing this craft. It is not recommended for young children.
  • Always take care when handling the box cutter, making sure to retract the blade when not in use.

This craft is especially fun for the older kids. Everywhere you look these days people have earbuds in and Perler beads make a great decoration for them. Get the beads in your child's school colors or his/her favorite colors and have them start beading. The result is a cool and creative look that only takes a little time. To cover the earbuds you'll need:

  • Perler Beads
  • Cutting board (preferably an old one)
  • Box cutter
  1. Using your box cutter, carefully slice down one side of the Perler bead. Don't go through the entire bead or you'll have 2 half beads.
  2. Put the box cutter down, making sure to retract the blade. Then pry open the cut bead and wrap around the earbud cord. Note that the lower part of the cord is too thick to cover. You'll only be able to cover the cords above the split. Wrapping the bead around the cord can be a bit tricky. I use one fingernail to pry it open and then the thumb from the other hand to split open the bead and wrap it around the cord. The beads are flexible so don't be afraid to work with them. If they are on the cord and haven't gone back to their original shape, give them a squeeze and they look fine. Once you get the hang of it, it goes smoothly and quickly.
  3. Finish beading and you have a great looking pair of earbuds.

        These are so much fun for kids, Glimmer. I have had summer camp at my house and this was always one of the activities. I also used them when I taught summer school on the last day before it would end. We would have a fun activity period and this was always popular.

        So glad to see this highlighted.

        Thanks lyricwriter - This is definitely something for bigger kids, but (and I don't know how old your children are) a good way to get them involved would be to let them pick out the colors. One down side to perler bead is that I seem to find them when I'm vacuuming. They have a tendency to disappear from the surface we work on. Thank you for your kind comments!

I love crafts cause it gives me a chance to interact with my children. My wife and I do crafts with them, something like a family thing. Good advice on this hub, especially around young children. My little girl is bad for putting things in her mouth. Sound advice all the way through, just a remarkable job well done. Keep it up! Take care and see you around Glimmer:)
