    You'll need;
    Perler/hama beads
    (or perhaps you refer to them as nabbi pearls, that works too ;) )

    Pegboard...a pair of tweezers if you want.

    Bring out your iron and some ironing paper / baking sheet paper.

    Iron goes on medium - high, but do try the medium heat first so that you wont melt it totally at first try!
