A friend of mine collects Monster High dolls and I've recently been making video game sprites out of perler beads. I'd forgotten how much fun they are! When I was a kid, they were the craft of choice for summer camps for a while. Colorful and easy for kids to make neat magnets or ornaments out of. Now they are used to make video game characters or skull coasters like I've done here. One thing I would recommend is having a pair of tweezers on hand to place the middle beads. Otherwise, you might get a bit frustrated.
