Chevron Perler Bead Necklaces

Perler Bead Necklaces - The Crafted SparrowI know the kids are back in school but if you are like me you are still looking for some fun weekend activities to keep them busy during down time.  We recently purchased a large amount of perler beads, I’m not sure why we hadn’t ever bought them before because these things have kept my boys busy for hours so far.  I had to join in the fun and create some things for myself while they were busy creating.  These Chevron Perler Bead Necklaces were so easy to make.

Perler Bead Necklaces - The Crafted SparrowStart by choosing a simple color palette.  I think picking no more than four colors works perfect.  

Follow  a simple chevron pattern on your perler bead board.  I usually repeat my first color three times, so I start and end with it.

Using a medium heat iron with no steam gently press over perler bead design.  Moving slowly until beads are melted slightly together.

That’s it your done.

Perler Bead Necklaces - The Crafted SparrowFor these simple perler necklaces I used a beading cord I had on hand.  

Perler Bead Necklaces - The Crafted SparrowJust string your selection of perler beads on the cord in whatever pattern you want.
