Are you supposed to iron both sides of Perler beads?
It’s generally a good idea to first iron those beads on the edges as they are prone to toppling over until they are melted and fused together. If some beads tip over, put away the iron immediately.
How do you stick Perler beads together without an iron?
With a Hot Pan. The most common and easiest way to melt your Perler pellets at home is using a hot pan instead. This method is similar to using an iron and takes as much time as the former. You’ll also only need a parchment sheet, a stove, and of course, a pan.
Can you use a hair dryer on Perler beads?
Apart from drying your hair, you can use your electric hair-dryer to melt your Perler beads. Just place parchment paper over your creation before heating it. You’ll then need to flip it over to the other side once the pellets have melted.
