Owl Always Love You perler bead card is simple to make with pearler beads and thoughtfully placed on a card you can gift to family or friends!
Perler beads are perhaps my favorite family activity. When you have multiple children in a range of ages, they are something that can entertain and yet still keep them learning at the same time.
From rainbow perler bead projects to perler bead earrings, they are the perfect solution to any type of day. Whether that day is a hot day (hello… Arizona!) to a cold, blustery wintery day, they have been the saving grace for all 5 of my kids.
I recently gave them a challenge of making perler bead owls — I offered them $1 for each owl they create, and that $1 goes into their savings bank. Of course.. mama had to show them how to make the first owl. But after that, it was history!
They were making owl after owl for days and days. They make an adorable addition to these “Owl Always Love You” cards. Bonus… these can be sent regular mail! Win win!
Perler Bead Owl
This Perler bead Owl combines 5 colors and brings them together to create a colorful, adorable owl that serves as a love “pun”.
(Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links for items at no additional charge to you.)
First, gather your beads and count out each color required:
- Light Pink: 22
- Yellow: 7
- White: 18
- Black: 2
- Blue: 46
Feel free to substitute your choice of colors for the owl!
Get started by laying out all of your materials on a flat surface. I like to lay a clean terry towel down to prevent the beads from rolling around the table (and onto the floor!)
You’ll start the layout with feet of the owl, and then slowly work your way to the body. Once the body and face are complete, get ready to iron your creation.
Lay your wax paper atop and gently press with a warm iron for 30-35 seconds. Avoid over-pressing because the beads will melt a little too much.
OWL Always Love You Card
In addition to those items you’ll also want to have:
- 8.5 x 11 cardstock
- adhesive dots (pick up at the Dollar Tree)
- paper cutter
- 5×7 envelopes (pick up at Hobby Lobby or here on Amazon)
- completely optional: 5×7 adhesive sleeves
- this OWL Always Love You printable (prints 2 per page!)
Once you print the card, cut the paper in half with a paper cutter, and affix your owl on top with a single adhesive dot.
That’s it! If you are sending to family or friends, place the owl on the card with a single adhesive dot. Then place in a 5×7 adhesive sleeve. Tuck in a 5×7 envelope and mail with a single forever stamp.
