Today’s crafts are Super Mario Christmas Mushroom Perler! These are so cute and easily made into ornaments for your tree, magnets for your fridge, or just wall hangings. If you celebrate Hanukkah, you could make a blue present mushroom. Or modify the mushroom colors themselves to make your favorite Super Mario Mushroom power-up (surprisingly, I like the green 1-Up mushrooms).
The original creator of these mushroom perler is Alientonx. Unfortunately, their Etsy shop no longer exists and their Tumblr, Alientonx’s Perlers, seems to have gone silent after 2015.
Perlers of this size are not difficult and a great craft for even the youngest of video game fans. Parents will want to do the melting for younger kids, but older children can be taught how to use the iron with supervision. If you already have perler beads in your house, you shouldn’t need to purchase separate colors to make these Super Mario perlers. But if you’re starting from scratch, here are the items you will need:
- Perler Bead Tray Fun Color
- Perler Bead Tray Neutral Color
- Square Trays
- Perler Bead Tweezers (optional, but very helpful)
I hope you enjoy making these Super Mario Christmas mushroom perler. If you’re looking for more holiday crafts, try this Reindeer from Tearaway. And join us again next week for another Holiday craft.
