Remember Perler beads? The darlings of the summer camp craft time? Turns out, you can use them for more than just flat ornaments and shapes! Heather from Poppy Haus used these meltable beads to make some breathable bowls using just a few simple materials. She says the bowls are perfect for air plants or soap, or other items that could benefit from air or water drainage. She originally saw the project using lots of multicolored beads, but she gave her bowls a more grown-up aesthetic with simple black and white.
