Perler Bead Picture Frame Craft for Kids
This craft is so beautiful simple. You are going to LOVE it! This is the perfect Christmas craft for kids of all ages. It makes a great gift for grandparents and parents.
You will need perler beads, a metal cookie cutter, and a disposable or silicon pan.
We used a disposable loaf pan we had laying around. I put a metal cookie cutter in the middle and then filled perler beads(fushion beads) around the cookie cutter filling all the space in the pan so it was about 1” or so thick (several layers).
Melt Perler Beads
Put in oven at 375 F for about 20 minutes or so. You want the beads to completely melt and run together.
If you can still see holes between the beads and from the whole in the middle of the perler beads then keep cooking.
Hint: Surprisingly, the melting beads don’t really smell or produce any fumes. But always use your best judgment and watch the melting process closely to ensure you get your desired results.
Remove Melted Bead Frame from the Pan
Allow the melted beads to cool in the pan about 5 minutes. (no longer)
Then carefully pop out the cookie cutter. Now loosen the melted plastic beads from the pan and pop out. Allow the frame to cool completely before framing a picture or wrapping.
Now pick your favorite picture and affix on the back of the Perler Bead Picture Frame with tape. You can add cardboard to make the frame stand up.
This makes such a fun, colorful Christmas Gift for Grandparents, Cousins, or friends.
