This easy perler bead charm bracelet craft is a great craft to keep little hands busy!
It’s Sarah again from Becoming Martha, back with another fun tutorial for you. This one is a great one to do with your tween, or even to make for yourself or a friend. It’s so simple and quick to do as well, which makes it a great option for a DIY accessory.
Perler Bead Charm Bracelets
Here’s what you’ll need for these perler bead charm bracelets:
- perler beads
- memory wire
- beading pliers (rounded nose and wire cutters)
The first step is to cut a length of wire. I cut mine to three full rounds of wire. Then, using your rounded tip pliers, twist a loop at one end of the wire to keep your beads on.
Start stringing your beads onto the wire. The first one we made was a soccer charm and we used Team Canada colors (my daughter is a huge soccer fan and we’re still in Olympic mode!). After, we also made a more glamourous one with metallic perler beads, and a white and rainbow one.
When the wire is full of beads, use the round nosed pliers to create a loop similar to the loop you started at the beginning. Loop around twice if you have extra wire.
The last step is to add the charm! We did a soccer ball charm on this one, a pretty bow on the metallic one, and a yellow colored charm on the rainbow bracelet.
And here they are – all three of them, stacked nicely together and looking adorable. Aren’t they perfect? I love how easily customizable they are!
I’ve just started dabbling in DIY jewelry – I made a cute metal stamped necklace for my daughters soccer teammates this week that I shared over on instagram. Make sure you follow along to see what else I create!
Thanks so much for joining me again – I can’t wait to share another great idea with you next month!
