Lately I’ve been struck with nostalgia and have been playing around with Perler beads. Remember those things? The little plastic beads that you arrange on a pegboard and fuse together with an iron? I ended up going a little overboard this weekend and spent more time making children’s crafts than a grown man is willing to admit. However, it’s a blast so I’m not ashamed of my geekiness.
Here’s a sampling of the things I made. I was particularly proud of the Instagram icon.
I decided to make pixelated versions of famous paintings, so here we have Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.
