Oh, Perler beads! Such a classic! Read on to see how we made this fun rainbow ring toss.

What You’ll Need

Perler beads

Circle and square pegboard

Ironing paper (or parchment paper)

Iron

2″ wood disc or cardboard

Hot glue gun 

What to Do

 Begin by making your Perler bead rings. we started by making the largest sized ring we could, and we made it in red (although the photo below shows orange- the computer ate our red ring photo- oops!). Cover your beads with your ironing paper and iron them until your beads have thoroughly fused together.  We set our iron on high heat and it only took several seconds for them to fuse together.

We continued this by making our next ring (orange) one size smaller. Continue doing this until you’ve made all your rings (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple).

Next, make a Perler bead stick by placing about 12 Perler beads in a row on a square pegboard, cover, and iron until fused. Once cool, glue to your wood disc with a hot glue gun.
