11 Gamertastic Crafts You Can DIY In An Afternoon

1) Legend of Zelda Beverage Coasters

Perler beads lend themselves really well to 8-bit gaming crafts, as they are perfect for that pixelated look that's classic to retro gaming

Instructables user toughschmidt has put together this great tutorial, with a set of 6 patterns for making a Legend of Zelda coaster set. The instructions and patterns are really easy to follow, and this would make a great craft activity for children as a result, with just a little adult supervision required for the later steps of ironing and attaching the cork backing.

The final step of this tutorial includes a handy guide to creating your own retro gaming perler bead patterns, so you can be designing your own patterns for your favourite games in no time!

Check out toughschmidt's other fun tutorials for a set of 6 Mario coasters, or (my personal favourite) this set of funky Pac-Man coasters
