Pokeballs, Great, Ultra and Original Perler Bead Patterns

Its Summertime which means more arts and crafts, more Perler Beads, more games and just more fun!  My kids had so much fun working on these and even after, my son played an entire game pretending to catch Pokemon with the different Pokeballs when they were finished.

Note: When melting them, feel free to melt them for however long works for your family. Mine like them a little more melted than usual to where the colors blend together instead of the bead look.  However both versions will look great!

Back to the Future Perler Bead Patterns

Back to the Future, Perler Beads, Marty, Doc, DeLorean
Marty, Doc & the DeLorean

Back to the Future is my husband’s all time favorite movie and the kids love it also.  When we came across Perler Bead patterns of Doc and Marty, I just had to build it!

Special thanks to the original poster of this picture which inspired us.  Grids and Perler beads can be found at Amazon here – grids or perler beads

 

 

 

We like our beads a little more heated to give it the blended effect instead of the beaded effect.  However, whichever way you choose, they will turn out amazing!

Marty

Doc

 

Of course, the DeLorean

These were super fun to build and only took about an hour or so for all three.  The DeLorean was definitely the hardest, however it was super fun.  They now hold a nice place of honor in our Perler Bead Collection!

Tetris Perler Bead Pattern

Perler Bead Tetris Bricks

This Perler bead craft was inspired by the classic game Tetris.  As I was looking around for a new craft pattern for the kids, I saw this pin for sale on Etsy.  However, when I went there it was no longer for sale, so the kids and I made our own.

We are putting Command Velcro strips on the back to put on the wall behind my desk at school.  We had super fun creating them.

The patterns are below.  Since they were pretty small, I was able to put 3 on each grid.

 

 

 

If you would like to make these yourself, Amazon has the grids and Perler Beads for sale very decently  priced.  You can also get them at Hobby Lobby or other craft stores.

Legend of Zelda Perler/ Hama Bead Patterns

My kids and I have recently discovered Perler beads and the amazing fun crafts that you can make out of them.  Perler beads are found at craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Amazon and can be used to make awesome patterns.  Finish them off with an iron and they are perfect to hang up or have cute decorations for a party or bedroom.

Here are a few Zelda Themed Patterns- We will  add more as we find and make them.

#1 – The Triforce – pixel inspiration from Brik 

#2 Link’s Shield – pixel inspiration from pixel art by Brik 

#3 Link to the Past Link- in retrospect, I would replace the top black bead from the right side of the shield with a peach one, as it looks like his eyes are drooping.  – pixel inspired by Deviant Art

#4 – Chicken from Link to the Past – pixel inspired by Kandi

#5 – Link’s Heart Meter – inspired by doityourfreakingself

I then also took this a step further.   My daughter and I used this to make a pair of heart earrings out of Mini Perler Beads.   She tweaked the pattern a little to make it smaller- however they still came out really neat.  Once the pattern was done, we poked a hole in the top, attached a small split ring and an earring hook and ironed.  One side I ironed so the colors would blend but the other side I left pixelated to have the best of both worlds.  My daughter loves them.

After the hearts, we decided to make Triforce Earrings!  Using a modified pattern, we used the same process as above with the hearts.  The results are below…

#6- Rupees

Zelda Rupees- Perler Hama Patterns

Original Design by – CalysDesign.  These were fun additions to our Zelda Collection.  Used red, pink,, white, light and dark purple, blue and dark blue, green and light green, yellow and pastel yellow with black trim.

#7 Link’s Lamp

Link's Lamp- Legend of Zelda Perler Hama Bead Pattern

This pattern is designed after the pixelated image of Link’s Lamp.  My son used white and red Perler beads to create it.   I think if we had to do this one again, we would maybe add another color (black?) around the inside due to the lamp feeling very fragile once ironed.

#8 Zelda Treasure Chest

Legend of Zelda Treasure Chest Perler Hama Bead Pattern

Original Design by Danny Yama.  Chest made from cheddar, red, rust, white and black beads.  If you would like a tray of presorted beads, Amazon has a great one here.    Or if you like sorting,  a 22,000 set here.
