How to Make Flower Charm Perler Bead Bracelets

Today's project uses one of our favorite craft supplies from the 90s that are still going strong! We're making Flower Charm Perler Bead Bracelets!

We've noticed a 90's inspired TikTok trend as of late where makers are  creating daisy chain belts using  Perler beads (those beads you put on a mini peg board and then melt together with an iron). The results are super cute and if you are an adorable gen-z-er this trend is definitely for you. However, if you are a 30-something mother of two who thinks this project is cute, but at the moment you're not too interested in putting what is essentially a necklace around your hips, we get it. So, we decided to make this trend our own, scale it down, and make the daisy chain belts into charm bracelets!

We had so much fun reliving our childhood crafting days using  Perler beads from Michaels Stores, and our kids had a great time getting in on it, too! Plus, these bracelets are so fun and unique! Here is what you will need:

Supplies Needed to Make Perler Bead Bracelets

Perler Beads

Perler Bead Pegboards (a round shape is a must to make the daisies!)

Gold jewelry chain

Gold jump rings 

Jewelry pliers 

Jewelry clasps (if desired)

Parchment Paper


How to Make Perler Bead Bracelets

Watch the video (and be sure you  subscribe to our YouTube channel), or read the steps below!

(It's important that you have a round board so that the pegs are arranged in the right configuration to made the daisies. With some boards the pegs are in a square grid that won't all for this design.)

Step 1: On a round pegboard, create your daisies by placing one color of Perler bead in the center with six beads of a different color around it.

Step 2: Once you have created your desired number of daisies, place a sheet of parchment paper over the daisies and melt with an iron, according to your Perler bead package directions.

Once melted, let cool and carefully remove from the paper/pegboard.

Measure the gold chain to your wrist size.

Step 3: Using your jewelry pliers, squeeze apart your jumps rings and feed them through one of the holes on one of the petals of the daisies.

(If the holes melted shut you can open them back up by carefully poking them with a needle or tack.)

Step 4: Attach the jump rings with the daises to your jewelry chain and squeeze the jump rings together using jewelry pliers to close.

Step 5: Using jewelry pliers, attach the clasp to one end of the bracelet to finish.

That's it! Aren't they the most fun? You could go crazy making beads in all of your favorite colors to match outfits, or to fit your personality. I want to play with Perler beads all day long and with the amazing selection you can find of these cuties at  Michaels Stores, you can!

We had a blast stringing up some of the leftover beads to make a matching stack to go with the charm bracelet and love how they look together! Perler beads aren't just for melting!

Happy Making!ox. Liz and Sam

    Great craft and very clear instructions but you said it was important to have a round board and then you showed making them on one end of an oblong board. It obviously worked well but it’s the kind of detail that catches my eye and bugs me.
