My Little Pony Perler Bead Art!

Pin It
 
 We love My Little Ponies!  See these shirts!
Especially the Friendship is Magic episodes!
Seriously, they are TOO cute!
 So my daughter and I set to work making little ponies
 out of Perler Beads or Melty beads as I call them!
Here are the main 6 stars of the show...
I did the ponies and my daughter made each of their pets! 

Pinkie Pie and Gummy

Fluttershy and Angel

Applejack and Winona

Rainbow Dash and Tank

Rarity and Opalescence

Twilight Sparkle and Owloysius 
(my daughter writes Owlwishes)

 I took an old canvas...
 And painted over the entire thing!
 Hot glued them right in place!


 I love the texture and the pixilated look!  
It's hanging in my daughters room now!

And, for fun, we created some custom ponies!
Tropical Mist and her frog
   
Lucky Clover and her cardinal
 Peachy Keen and her butterfly
This was a fun project!
It's nice to have a goal when playing with perler beads...
otherwise you end up with a bunch of colorful coasters.
:)



Linking up to THESE parties this week!
