  • How to make dice. Perler Bead 3 D Dice - Step 1
    Step 1

    You will need:

    197 Perler beads of the main color

    21 Perler beads of the color of second color
    A large square pegboard
And of course you will need ironing paper and an iron

  • How to make dice. Perler Bead 3 D Dice - Step 2
    Step 2

    Place the beads on the peg board the same way I have mine in the picture.

    Try not to iron them to much or they won't snap together properly.

    Step 3

    The 1 will be the top, the 6 will be the bottom, and the 3, 5, 4 and 2 will wrap around the sides, with the 2 meeting the 3 at an edge. As shown in the picture

  • Step 4

    Join the 4 and the 6 together at a right angle, using the front of the 6 side as the bottom of the cube and the 4 facing you. It will take some coaxing to get the pieces to snap together. It may help to push on the flat side of a bead with the eraser end of a pencil to help force it int the gap.

  • Step 5

    Continue to add sides which connect to the bottom. The 2 will connect with the 4 and 6. The 3 will connect with the 2 and the 6. The 5 will connect to the 3, 6 and 4. Finally, add the 1 to close the cube.

Thank you. I was hoping that this was a good tutorial for this project. It was hard to describe how to put it together. I love taking something and going beyond the scope of what they can do.
