It's a Perler Bead thing!

As I was perusing Pinterest, I came across a few Perler Bead artwork. It totally brought me back almost 30 years when I was first introduced to perlers. I found a large bag of these colorful beads in the scout shop of the headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America where my grandfather worked. I had no clue what they were but the colors and the fact they were beads attracted me so I bought them. Flash forward 30 years and I still love them like I did back then, I just forgot. So thanks Pinterest for reminding me and giving me that warm feeling as I remember my wonderful grandfather, Godofredo Neric.

Inspired by the great perler artists on Pinterest, I started with this...


Yup! My inner geek is showing. So then I tried these...

Then I thought about my lil' man's teacher, so made these... 

Then I thought about my good friend who sews...

Then my lil' man saw a creeper with a Christmas hat and asked for one ....

Hmmm... Christmas is coming! Let's make ornaments but the geek kind...


Which then lead to more ornies...


Even Minion ornies...

And finally, since football season is coming, a few Baltimore Ravens perler ornies with a bonus owl...

I sure did have fun with these! No worries. I'm not done yet. I want to make some splatoon squid earrings and ornies, a few Dr. Who, maybe some Avengers, and Adventure Time also. One day I will attempt to make a large Perler bead mural wall art of Jeremy Renner. *sigh*
