These Perler bead centerpieces WILL MELT YOUR FACE WITH AWESOME #Real Weddings: Northeast US#crafts#crafty wedding#diy centerpiece#new jersey#non-floral centerpiece August 31 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Amanda Stevens Photography Photos by Amanda Stevens Photography Let it be known that this industrious couple hand-placed over 56,000 Perler beads for their New Jersey wedding. THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THE AWESOME. But I shall say some anyway. Alyssa and Ryan met playing Ultimate Frisbee (which is one of my fave things ever) and sealed the deal at their wedding this past June… after hours and hours of assembling some amazeballs Perler bead centerpieces. What do you get with 56,000+ beads? I'll tell you. More than 240 flowers and a couple of very adorable cartoon self-portraits. Take a look — they've got roses and calla lilies and tiger lilies and irises and boatloads more. Sadly (well, I would be sad!), none of the flowers remain in Alyssa and Ryan's possession. At the end of the night, all 240 flowers had been scuttled away by guests who know a damn good thing when they see it!

And yes, I most definitely have one of these flowers in a vase at home 🙂 5 agree Reply How fun! I never noticed before how Perler beads are like 8-bit graphics….this looks worth every bit of the thousands of hours I'm sure they slaved over those decorations. 1 agrees Reply i want to do something similar at my wedding. did the bride create the templates for the centerpieces or did she find them somewhere?
