Make adorable pixelated bow shoe clips!
After all, Bowties are, and forever will be, Cool!
Easy and fun!
Using Perler, melty or hama beads!
But we've ended up with a jumble of mixed colors in big bags.
And not a black one to be found!
searching take half the time of the making process!
Now I have some metallics, mint, skin tones and black!
No searching or gathering!
About $2.59 per package of 500...great for getting the specific colors you need!
They have about 60 different colors.
For this one I used the hexagon shaped board.
(or print something off the computer)
but having an outline is very helpful!
This will give it the true 8-bit feel.
I did an ombre bow...with a little highlight!
Carefully turn the entire thing over, cover with parchment and iron the other side.
The edges of the perler beads will melt and stick together.
I did not end up using the alligator clip though...
I used E6000 to glue it on the backside...but because of the arch of the clip,
I wrapped it with thread to keep it's shape while the glue dried.
(then easily cut the thread off)
