If you are looking for a fun craft to make with perler beads, then these DIY perler bead gift tags from The Red Thread are a great idea. You can make them for any occasion, but I especially love them for wrapping Christmas gift. If you attach a hook or loop to the gift tag, it will also double as a Christmas ornament. This is a fun way to get kids involved in helping you wrap presents, and then the handmade ornament would be even more special.
If you’re looking for more perler bead patterns and inspiration, here are a few helpful links. Also remember that you can use any sort of cross-stitch or friendship bracelet patterns with perler beads.
