Our family is a huge Nintendo fan and our kids have grown up playing all the Super Mario franchise games. This year, the kids had their own tree to decorate and we decided to make some Perler beads ornaments. We are looking forward to making lots of ornaments this holiday season.
In the pictures below, I used a Christmas hook, However, in my newest ornaments, I have used a ribbon which I attach before I iron. In my Etsy Store and my Online Store, www.galaxyofpixels.com – I have several of these kits ready to go with more on the way. You can purchase them for $2 or $2.50 a piece and they have exactly what you need to make these ornaments.
Mario and Luigi in Christmas Stockings
Mario in the stocking! After making Mario, I changed the red to green to create Luigi. When ironing, we left one of the top beads open and not too melted. This allowed us to put a Christmas hook into the hole which helped it fit easily on the tree.
Red and Green Mushrooms
Same as above- once made, we melted everything but the top bead to allow for the ornament hook.
Star and Mushroom Tree
Don’t forget while melting to leave room for the hook.
Yoshi Christmas Wrapped Egg!
This Christmas wrapped Yoshi Egg was super easy to make and looks great as a Christmas ornament.
This Mario Santa turned out super cute! Made with sand, black, white and red Perler beads. Will also work for Hama or just plain melty beads.
