Do you have a great idea for a craft, recipe or party game? We’d love to hear them!
very cool–this template could easily also be used to do a cross-stitch of the same! best, k.
oops i just saw this hint in the fine print. oh well, great minds… ;) k.
I remember when you posted this, Sally! Super cute! :D
Awesome job Ms. Sally!
My grandma has a bunch of melty bead things on her tree — I made them for her years ago. I’ll have to make her one of these, too — she loves Webkinz!
As someone who works with these beads a lot, I love this idea! But please please please do NOT use wax paper! It will ruin all of your hard work. Use parchment paper or baking paper instead.
Good call, blessedwithmany! Yes, use parchment paper!
Sally Webkinz, you never cease to surprise me with all of your talents! This is awesome! I have a friend who used to play on WW and is really into creating things with perler/melting beads. I will have to show him this article and maybe encourage him to make a really cool ornament for a really big Webkinz fan. *hint, hint* ;-)
