Doodlecraft's DIY bow accessories resemble pixelated art works in retro arcade games. Made using inexpensive perler beads, these bow accessories are easily shaped and connected using a heated iron.

Using a blend of colorful and monochromatic beads, this project is easy and fun for the whole family. When your custom bows are finished, accent them with smaller metal clips or a larger clip that transforms the objects into desirable hair bows.

Whether worn to accent one's hairstyle or used to enhance the look of your shoes, these pixelated bow ties are not only incredibly easy and fun to make but are also budget-friendly. On average, a package of 500 parler beads will set you back under $3, making this project affordable for parents or craft lovers who don't want to break the bank.
