I love these bright and fruity designs. They look so vibrant and summery.

Of course you can use the same technique to create your own designs. Go wild!

How do you glue magnets to Perler beads?

If you cannot get magnets with a sticky back then you can glue them onto the perler bead designs with some strong craft glue.

Just apply a little glue to the back of the magnet and press and hold onto your perler bead project.

Let the glue dry before using.

What can I use instead of ironing paper for Perler beads?

If you do not have perler bead ironing paper on hand then you can safely use parchment paper as a replacement.
