Tangled image out of perler beads

Beads and princesses are the perfect combination, guaranteeing fun and commitment of girls. Staying in a fairy-tale aura, I wanted to create something bigger and more ambitious. Therefore, I’ve decided on the Tangled image in the shape of the sun, which is the symbol of Rapunzel’s country.

The Tangled image shows a scene when the missing princess and Flynn release a lantern from a boat. In the background there is the castle of Rapunzel’s parents. In the sky there are other lanterns that the inhabitants of Crown release to celebrate the birthday of the princess.

The image turned out to be a big challenge and the whole family was engaged for several days.

Making of Tangled image out of perler beads

I used the cross stitch pattern that I found on Pinterest. I made small changes in it, mainly in the shape of a gondola.

Day after day we were producing sun rays.

The center piece was the middle of the sun.

By default, each element should be ironed through baking paper to connect the beads.

Once we had all the elements we tried to arrange the image and then glue it on the frame.
