Perler Bead Designs, Patterns and Ideas

Perler Bead Designs

Basically you create a design on a plastic plate using plastic beads and then melt it once it’s done with an iron used over a piece of parchment paper. There’s a little bit of something for everyone!


Perler Beads - I recommend some starter sets with neutral colors Perler Bead Pegboards - I also recommend a set or pre-shaped boards  Ironing Paper - We use the same pieces again and again! Iron - A must-have. (links in the full post)


Heavy book?

Place a heavy book over the finished design to keep it flat.


Iron in a circular motion, not in one place for too long.
