I’m absolutely crazy about Valentine’s Day. The colors, the candy, the CRAFTS! What’s not to love about this holiday? Thought I would have some Valentine’s Day fun with my son’s latest craft obsession, Perler Beads. I created a vintage rose template and love the way it turned out. I hadn’t used them in years and I totally forgot how slow going they can be but once you get in the groove of things, positioning hundreds of tiny beads can be somewhat meditative. Just take your time and enjoy the process because the end result will be beautiful!

Step 1. Print out and follow the Free Vintage Roses Template. Or you could find any other design you like and follow that. Totally customizable!
Step 4. Place one of the fused sides over the edge of a table and heat up until it can be folded down. Hold until the side has cooled and set in place. Use caution since those beads can get pretty warm!
