Perler or pyssla beads are colorful beads that allow you to create cute designs from from coasters to key-chains to just room décor. They come with a number of pegboards and a few wax sheets.

There are certain things you need to keep in mind before using the beads. The first thing you need to consider is what design you are going for: a Nintendo character, a logo, a cupcake, an emoji…etc. The easiest way to create the design you want is to “google” the keywords: “perler beads super Mario,” or whatever image you wanted to imitate. After that, you gather the required colors: red, white, and black in this case, to make the process easier.
After you have done that, you get a pair of tweezers and you place the bead one by one on your pegboard by slowly copying the image you see online. Once you’ve finished, put the wax paper that comes with the perler bead set on top of the design and iron over the design. The beads will all stick together in the end.
That’s basically all you need to know about perler beads. Happy crafting!
