Can you believe it is the end of summer already?! School starts back up in 2 weeks!! We had such a crazy crazy summer with the move, I have no idea where time flew!
We decided to spend some quality time and craft. Bonus - we also made little back to school gifts for the teachers. We made melty bead office supplies to give to the teachers!
Arrange the Perler beads in the shapes of your choice. We made large flowers, little flowers, triangles and circles. If you are attaching to a pencil, you want to leave space in the middle.
Melt Perler beads or melty beads between layers of parchment paper using an iron on medium setting.
Make a whole bunch of shapes and patterns
Insert pencil into a big flower, hot glue magnets, push pins and paper clips.
That's it - fun colorful and cheery office supplies for back to school teacher gift! Did I mention we also supported and collected a whole bunch of box tops in the process plus got to (ad) enter to win $1000 for the school
