This pineapple perler bead love card is simple to make with pearler beads and thoughtfully placed on a card you can gift to family or friends!
Perler beads are my favorite family activity. When you have multiple children in a range of ages, they are something that can entertain and yet still keep them learning at the same time.
For me, it’s something that brings together my oldest (14) all the way down to my youngest (4) in an activity that is educational and allows us to expand our brain.
My kids have been helping me create lots of fun perler bead designs – and most recently, puns. I’m a huge fan of puns.. and so I wanted to share my passion for puns with my kids. I offered them $1 for each project they create, and that $1 goes into their savings bank.
They started with these cute OWL perler bead designs – combined with a card. Then, we moved on to a lightbulb – so we could say “I Love You Watts and Watts!” Now we’re onto these cute pineapple cards. Cute, right?
Pineapple Perler Bead
This Pineapple Perler Bead combines 4 colors and brings them together to create a colorful and adorable pineapple that serves as a love “pun”.
(Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links for items at no additional charge to you.)
First, gather your beads and count out each color required:
- Brown: 21
- Yellow: 71
- Green: 22
- Dark Green: 4
Get started by laying out all of your materials on a flat surface. I like to lay a clean terry towel down to prevent the beads from rolling around the table (and onto the floor!)
You’ll start the layout with bottom of the pineapple, and then slowly work your way to the stem. When the pineapple is complete, get ready to iron your creation.
Lay your wax paper atop and gently press with a warm iron for 30-35 seconds. Avoid over-pressing because the beads will melt a little too much.
If You Were a Fruit, You’d be a Fine-Apple Card
In addition to those items you’ll also want to have:
Once you print the card, cut the paper in half with a paper cutter, and affix your pineapple on top with a single adhesive dot.
That’s it! If you are sending to family or friends, place the pineapple on the card with a single adhesive dot. Then place in a 5×7 adhesive sleeve. Tuck in a 5×7 envelope and mail with a single forever stamp.
