Feather Perler Bead Necklace

Feather Perler Bead Necklace

Okay folks.  Today we have a perler bead craft for momma!  If you’ve been following the last few months then you know that our boys have been on a perler bead bender.  They’ve been making 3D Mario Figures and Robot Key Chains and Perler Bead Bubble Wands!  Well I thought that it was high time that I made something for ME.  Ha ha!  So I came up with this Feather Perler Bead Necklace that I absolutely LOVE!

Step 3: iron both sides of the design flat.  Fasten the jump ring to the top bead and attach to the chain.  If the hole in the top bead has been melted closed use a needle to poke a hole for the jump ring.

I added this little feather to the top to add some interest.  It’s from my jewellery making stash but I am sure that you can find something similar on eBay.

I love getting in on the fun creative crafting energy that my boys have.  And they love crafting as a family.  It’s a win, win.  The fun never ends around here.  You can bet that there will be more perler bead crafts coming soon!
