Mr. T in Perler Beads

Mr. T in Perler Beads

Not only do I blog about crafts, sometimes I even make crafts. I’m not quite sure how I came up with the idea to make a portrait of Mr. T with Perler beads, but after many trips to the craft store, sorting beads and ordering more beads online, he was complete. It took over 10,000 beads to make Mr. T and he is more than two feet high!

Check back tomorrow for more Mr. T crafts!

Make Your Own BB-8 Perler Bead Cord Keeper

aftb-bb8-cord-keeper-title

It can be so easy to lose those tiny earbuds, so why not make a cute BB-8 cord keeper to keep track of them in style? I found this quick tutorial by Allison Waken on her blog All For The Boys.  It’s a simple project, and for the more adventurous, it would be easy to to adapt for other designs, just in case this isn’t the droid you were looking for.

Shadow Box Pokemon Perler Bead Badges

He’s displayed the badges in a shadow box frame, set out from the backing on a few extra beads for that 3D look, and finished it with a Pokemon blue and yellow surround. The lady in question is apparently a huge Pokemon nut, so hopefully really appreciated his efforts! Who said romance was dead..?

Good job, Chubbs :P
