as a pretty much perler expert:

get a bigggg pegboard if you can !! you can do so many projects on one board, I got this one from michaels! /safe

on the same note, if you can’t get a big one get clear pegboards!! they don’t melt !! I’ve been using my clear one for two years and it hasn’t melted even a little bit, also you can lay a pattern underneath which is pretty cool

also yes tape method heart bounce and tweezers!!

put a heavy object on your perler project while it cools to prevent it from warping

I also love this bc I have carpet flooring and it picks up beads fast (and pony beads!!) but definitely not a necessity haha /safe

be sure to iron them evenly! and flattening them down with a book or smth until they cool makes them stay flat. and lots of people have problems with their boards melting, but i never have and i iron my perlers so much that you cant see holes on the ironed side.

Please iron both sides or else the perler will fall apart!! I had to learn the hard way lol tbh confetti

using the tape method (strips of masking tape over the beads to iron them off of the pegs) will save u sooooo much when it comes to pegboards, and make sure to poke holes in it if you like ironing them flat that way they dont popshocked
