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)

The longest part is always putting the beads in place (or sorting them if you’ve made the mistake of buying your bead colors all jumbled together in one of those giant tubs like me).

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

Iron your beads generously on both sides.

Before they’re cool, wrap them around your tin can with the parchment paper still on top. Tape it in place and cool completely to set the shape of your crown.

Glue your crown onto a headband and you’re fit to be queen for a day! These would be perfect for any princess costume and would make for super-fun party hats!
