Download Make Frozen-Inspired Dolls … With Hama Perler Beads Template
Some may know these beads as Hama or Perler Beads, but essentially they are little plastic beads that you can arrange in difference colour patterns on peg boards and fuse together with an iron to create characters, jewelry, coasters.... sky's the limit.
To make Princesses Anna and Elas start by arranging the pearler beads to match the patterns for Anna and Elsa
Lay a piece of parchment paper atop your design and move a hot dry iron over the surface in a slow circular motion. The iron usually needs to be set to the wool setting, but please follow the instructions on your pearler bead packaging.
Being that the parchment is semi-transparent you can see when the beads have fused together. You need to lift the iron when the beads are fused but still have a hole in the middle.
Let the beads cool for a second before peeling off the parchment.
Wait for one side to cool before turning over to iron the other side. Ironing the beads on both sides will make your princesses nice and strong for playing with - particularly important for the delicate arms and legs.
