Taking Down The Beads

I just finished removing all of the Perler beads from my wall. They were just distracting me. I counted them afterward and they totaled 330. That is a lot and it was just the ones on the wall. Not the larger ones (that I haven't destroyed), the ones in the stocking, or the ones I've given away.

Are you planning on continuing making them? Wish i could get some of those from you!!

I'll get around to making them again when I feel they don't take up so much time. My other hobbies don't cost money the way these do. I have a lot more ideas for things I want to create using these.

Cookie said...

I see.. well if you ever consider parting with them.. i'd be interested :)

Dante said...

I have no idea who you are.

Just a fan of your work with the beads :) (a 40 years old woman living in Belgium) :)

That's awesome and random. I'll be making more likely next month in this style before making the old school Mega Man. I don't want to have my wall painted and have to pull them down so soon. Also realized that the sticky puddy doesn't work on this but those damned tacks do with keeping them on the wall.

Ok, never tried to stick mine on the walls, i admit. I made keychains, necklaces and various things aswell in perler beads ;)

Dante said...

I want to find a better way to stick them up. I have made a couple of necklaces but I don't wear necklaces so its weird that I even did it. If you have a blog or something let me know here and I'll post the link.

Maybe a really long and thin nail (if you don't iron them through that is)..?
No, i don't have a blog, sorry...
You have a FB maybe?
The two main necklaces i did were one inspired by Dragon ball (the 7 crystal balls) and one little winged heart.

I think it might be the texture of my wall that is the issue. Its textured. Stupid hundred year old building. Almost 100. I'm gonna get back to telling men how to clean their nails on my other blog.

First i'd like to say thanks for creating such dope work and sharing, also you sir, are hilarious...question, do you make your own patterns or are they from a specific source? Either way its stupid fresh. Thanks for it and and payinig homage to the 80's

These particular ones were inspired by Gotham Crafts I believe. Then I just started trying to make ones no one had. I'll be doing it again next month starting with Bionic Six. I get the designs from other creators, pixel images from games, or just make them up. A lot of times it is hard to get them from others because people take bad pictures that are unclear. I encourage people to take and use my designs. Thanks for checking this out by the way however you got here.
