Perler Bead Alphabet Letters

I can't take credit for this idea, I saw it on 1+1+1=1, but when I saw it on my Pinterest feed, I knew I had to try and make my own set of Perler bead alphabet letters.  I picked up the supplies at Ikea when I was there last weekend, and let me tell you, I had a blast playing with them.  I spent the entire afternoon making fun stuff, it felt like I was 10 years old again!


It took a bit of time to figure out the correct shapes for the letters, but once I got the hang of it, I was off and running.




I can't wait to use these at school. They aren't as durable as I hoped, but luckily I have a ton of Perler beads, so if one of my letters breaks I can easily make a replacement. I also love that this is a really economical way to make multiple sets of letters for students to use. I could easily make an entire alphabet for each of my students.  There are also a million ways to use these, stop by tomorrow and I'll show you some of my ideas!
