What are Perler beads?

Perler beads are plastic beads that are used for crafts, and they’re cylindrical in shape. You might also see Perler beads referred to as “melty beads” or “fuse beads”, because they’re meant to be melted together!

Create a cool design (like these summer items!) with Perler beads on a plastic pegboard. Then cover the design with parchment paper and iron the beads together. The heat from the iron will “magically” fuse the beads together into one piece.
