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.

Materials: 

Directions:

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 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.
