I'm sure many of you remember playing with perler beads as a kid (at least I know I do). I've fallen in love with them again after seeing so many awesome ideas floating around online lately. So I got inspired and picked up some supplies to make these fun perler bead bangles--I even made a Vine video at the craft store.

To make your own bangles you'll need some beads, a circular pegboard, parchment paper, an iron, and a bangle for sizing.

Use your original bracelet as a guide for the perler beads, placing your beads outside to make sure it'll fit.

Set your iron to medium and no steam, then place the parchment paper and iron over the beads until you can see them melting together.

I made a hexagonal bangle too, just to see how it would turn out.
