Do you love crafting with perler beads? Make a unique perler bead crown with this easy tutorial!Hi, this is Amy from Maker Mama! I’ve been on a bit of a perler bead kick lately, so I was super excited to see if my idea for a perler bead crown would work out. Lucky for me and you it did!

DIY Perler Bead Crown

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Perler beads
  • Large perler bead board
  • Parchment paper and iron
  • Tin can
  • Tape
  • Headband
  • Favorite glue (I used a hot glue gun)

I used a rectangular pegboard to make my crown. The total width was approximately 10.5 inches.
