This is a super fun project that my son and I made together. We used some sky paper that we found at Hobby Lobby and mini Perler and mini Artkal beads to make Sonic and the Emeralds. Added a glass frame and the finished product is above. We feel that it turned out pretty well. (Side note- if you haven’t discovered Artkal beads, they are amazing. They melt great with Perler and they have so many more colors. I have linked their site above. I was skeptical at first, but now I love them! I have only used the mini beads but I’m sure the regular size would work as well.)
We made several of these and I have hung one of them in our gaming area and another in my classroom in my reading area. They should be some great conversation starters with some of my students. Feel free to use our pattern above to make one for yourself or you can click here to go to my Etsy store to purchase to purchase one already made and will arrive to you through priority mail in just a few days. They are perfect to add to a classroom, library, living room, den, family room, kids room or practically anywhere.
Also, feel free to check out some of my other Perler/Artkal projects…. Thanks for looking!
