Using beads and lacing, follow these diagrams to make bracelets, belts or whatever you can imagine! Be creative!

Bead Lacing

Layers or segments of Perler designs can be attached to one another by using thread, string, or lacing to tie them together. Using the diagram as an example, you can assemble your designs without glue. This illustration is expanded to show the lacing pattern. Be sure to tie your string tightly.

Melted Word Necklaces

Start by stringing some perler beads onto embroidery thread. I used a big embroidery needle to make it easier to string.   Shape letters, word, or shape of choice onto hard non-meltable surface (I used a cutting board) lined with parchment paper. (Note: I did the word backwards because we wanted the flatter side to be on the back.) Place another piece of parchment paper on top.

With a hot, dry iron, and with a litte pressure, melt the beaded design between the parchment paper. (Tip: you could flatten one side with iron, flip over and iron the other side to make flat as well. It will just give you a little different effect.) Let cool a little, then pull off of parchment paper. Trim off the excess embroidery thread, and you are done. To make into a necklace, I attached thin colored elastic cording on each end to the desired length.
