Buffalo Check Perler Bead Christmas Ornaments

Trendy Buffalo Check Perler Bead Christmas Ornaments with FREE PatternsOver the summer I introduced my two little boys to Perler Beads. I remember loving playing with them when I was little so it was no surprise that they took right to them. Perler Beads are great for practicing hand-eye coordination, following patterns, and creative play when they come up with their own designs.

And there is no reason that their creative play can’t help you have some fun new trendy decor for Christmas! Buffalo check is a hot pattern right now so how fun would it be to use that pattern to make Christmas ornaments in a form that the kids can make.

Once the patterns are made, iron the Perler Beads for your child per the directions that come with them. Be sure that the “hook” at the top is melted well so that you don’t have to worry about it breaking when hanging.
