perler® friendship bracelet cuff

This project is intended for children age 6+. With the help of an adult, make this unique cuff bracelet from Perler® beads! Mixed solids and patterns for a personalized look.
Step 1

First, create your design on a large pegboard. Work diagonally, from corner-to-corner, to get the size needed to make this cuff.
TIP: Work across three to five rows for the best results.

Step 2

ADULT: Place ironing paper, included with the beads, over the design and iron so just enough that the paper sticks to the beads and the beads begin to melt together.

Step 3

ADULT: Carefully remove from the pegboard, while still stuck to the paper, and place on your ironing mat (or board). Turn it over. Fold the paper so it covers this side as well and melt this side. Melt until they are very well molded.

Step 4

ADULT: Carefully, pick up by the paper while it is still hot and wrap it around a cup or jar. Hold it in place while it cools to touch.

Step 5
Once it is warm, remove from the glass and gently mold to fit as needed.
