I use safety pins!! make sure you're doing it while the perler is still somewhat warm though, or you may have trouble pushing the pin through and hurting yourself

I personally used a safety pin that I bent, but it definitely isn't the safest method to do it! (I've stabbed myself a few times because I was doing it when the perler was cooled) Though I've heard pushpins work pretty well too. Just make sure the holes you make are big enough for your cord/string!

i accidentally melt my perlers
all the time Dx i use a pair of
jewelry pliers to open a hole
in them again. i warm the beads
a little first to make them easier
to pierce. i got my pliers from
walmart in the craft section.
they have a tapered tip so when
you push through they'll make
the hole bigger. hope this helps!

If you have one of the tweezers that come with the kits you can use the tips to poke a hole through it while still warm! Its a lot safer too

Maybe use a thumbtack or a safety pin?
