I made these earrings for the Christmas in July swap. I picked up a mini perler bead keep to try things out. I found that the mini perler beads melt QUICK. I barely had to touch the beads for a second or so before it was fused. I sort of estimated a pattern as I went, because I was just experimenting and did not expect it to work.

I found the beads when I was shopping with my son. He had to build a diorama for class on Charlie and the Glass Elevator. He ended up using a clear plastic container and building all the characters and the bed using perler beads. We have a lot of fun with perler beads at my house.

Those are cute! My kiddo loves perler beads, too, but we've never tried the minis.
