Feather Perler Bead Necklace


large perler bead peg board

15 turquoise

23 light blue

5 mint beads

7 salmon beads

49 glow-in-the-dark blue beads

parchment paper


jump ring


small silver feather (optional)


Step 1: working from the corner of the peg board, begin to build the feather.

Step 2: continue to build the feather from the top down until completed.

Step 3: iron both sides of the design flat.  Fasten the jump ring to the top bead and attach to the chain.  If the hole in the top bead has been melted closed use a needle to poke a hole for the jump ring.

Fun right?!  And it’s GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!!  I love, love, love it!

I added this little feather to the top to add some interest.  It’s from my jewellery making stash but I am sure that you can find something similar on eBay.

I love getting in on the fun creative crafting energy that my boys have.  And they love crafting as a family.  It’s a win, win.  The fun never ends around here.  You can bet that there will be more perler bead crafts coming soon!
