Perler TARDIS

3 May

I haven’t entirely given up my crafty side! I’ve been focusing more on nail art recently but I still can’t give up on crafts. Most of the stuff I do isn’t worthy of a whole blog post but this….I’m really proud of this!

Perler beads are also known as fusible or hama beads. They’re little tubes of plastic that can be melted together to form various patterns. I’ve posted a few perler projects in the past and this is perhaps my most epic one.

The TARDIS is an integral part of the Doctor Who series; more or less, it’s a spaceship that can travel through time and space. I’ve really gotten into Doctor Who in recent months and I’ve been doing a lot of Doctor Who crafts: papercraft, 2D perler, cross stitch, and now 3D perler. As a side note, if anyone’s interested in a cross stitched TARDIS  (or anything else) let me know and we can talk prices, I absolutely love commissioned work!!

Now, on to the project!

The light on the top is made with glow in the dark beads, I embroidered the details, and everything is held together with a mixture of embroidery floss and hot glue. And yes, it’s bigger on the inside ;-) I think this is going to be my new desktop candy dish!
