DIY Perler Bead Earrings You’re Girls Will Love

DIY enchanting fairy garden

We’ve made animals, geometric shapes, flowers and rainbows from the tiny, amazing Perler beads in the past, but this week’s craft was a first for us. We made DIY Perler bead earrings. The colorful and affordable DIY jewelry is so versatile because the color combos are endless, plus so many pairs can be made in a day. Our daughters made some for themselves, and then pairs for friends. We customized with vinyl shapes and letters, but also made multi-color earrings with large and small Perler beads. It was fun!

Here’s how we did it. We can’t take full credit for this idea. The super talented Kimberly of A Girl and A Glue Gun originally posted about this craft idea. Thanks for always sharing such amazing idea, Kim.



Step 1: Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet, and then set perler beads on top of it. If you want the circular multi-color ones, you need to put two small perler beads inside the big beads. If you want one solid color, you just need to melt one perler bead.

Step 2: Melt them at 350 degrees for about 38 minutes. Let them cool. You can see the difference in size once the big and littler perler beads are melted.

Step 3: Add vinyl shapes or letters to the front of the earrings.

Step 4: Use a dab of E-6000 on the back on the earring pin post, and then push onto the back of the perler bead (the flat side). Let dry for at least 24 hours.

Spread Hope & Cheer With A DIY Cloud and Rainbow Card

DIY paper and yarn card and rainbow wall decor

We worked with ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers this month to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. To mark the #50yearsbright milestone, Astrobrights Instagram feed is featuring a different color from their rainbow assortment of paper every day to celebrate 50 years. We are so thrilled to be a part of the paper party! Our color is Stardust White™, which was the perfect color for our magical clouds cards, packed with a rainbow punch.

We created a DIY paper cloud card with an inspirational quote (link to the free printable is below), and a rainbow of yarn hanging from it. It’s such a fantastic craft for people of all ages, and a thoughtful card that can be sent to friends and family who are going through a tough time, and need a bit of cheer and hope in their day. It’s like sending sunshine in the mail! Plus, once it serves its purpose of a card, you can hang it on a bedroom or office wall for a colorful and uplifting piece of home decor.

THE FREE PRINTABLE IS AVAILABLE HERE (the full card version) and HERE (if you want to fold the paper to make a card, and not have cloud lines on the second page of the card). They are almost the same – just a cutting preference.

Visit the Astrobrights Instagram feed to see all the amazing projects being featured, and also our IG to learn about how we made the card, and details on how enter in the Astrobrights 50th Anniversary contest to win a $500 American Express card. Hurry, the contest ends June 19, 2019.
