Maybe use a thumbtack or a safety pin?

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

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!

i typically use pushpins!!

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 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
