Perler House Party

Man, I love House Party! Not only is it super fun to host parties with your friends, but I love that they often introduce you to new products that you may not have tried before. The Perler House Party is one such party.

I had seen these little doodads before but never really knew how much fun they were. I have to admit, I may have had as much fun as the kids did with these things.

Depending on the kit you buy, you may receive a square peg board, or a shaped one, as we did for the party. I chose to bring the craft to my Daisy Girl Scout meeting as our opening craft, where the girls were able to choose either a monkey or a lizard.

It’s super easy to put these together. You basically just put the beads on the peg board in whatever way you want, place a piece of wax paper on top, and then iron over it in small circles.

When it cools, flip it over and do the same.

The batch for the party also came with key rings which was fun. Sadly, our meeting wrapped up so quickly that I didn’t get any photos of the girls’ completed projects. Boo. BUT, here are some examples from the Perler gallery that I really liked.

Did you know you can also make 3D crafts?

Some of my favorites are the old game characters.

As you can tell, you are only limited by your imagination.

I can’t recommend this craft enough. It’s saved us many meltdowns during the super cold we had not too long ago. When the kids were pent up inside the house, this would keep them occupied for hours. Definitely check them out!  And don’t forget to check out House Party.  Let me know if you get selected for any parties, yourself!

About Me


Hi, I’m Autumn. Welcome to my blog! I created this website because I have always loved to make things whether it was through crafting, photographing, knitting, sewing, scrapbooking, writing. You name it, I’ve tried it! The problem is, I never stick to one thing. I’m constantly jumping from one hobby to another and back again. There are just so many I enjoy that I can’t help but diversify my interests. I hope that by sharing my creativity with you you’ll be inspired to try something new. Maybe you'll find so many things you are interested in that you also become a fickle hobbyist!
