Our family is a huge Nintendo fan and our kids have grown up playing all the Super Mario franchise games. This year, the kids had their own tree to decorate and we decided to make some Perler beads ornaments. We are looking forward to making lots of ornaments this holiday season.
In the pictures below, I used a Christmas hook, However, in my newest ornaments, I have used a ribbon which I attach before I iron. In my EtsyStore and my Online Store, www.galaxyofpixels.com – I have several of these kits ready to go with more on the way. You can purchase them for $2 or $2.50 a piece and they have exactly what you need to make these ornaments.
Mario and Luigi in Christmas Stockings
Mario in the stocking! After making Mario, I changed the red to green to create Luigi. When ironing, we left one of the top beads open and not too melted. This allowed us to put a Christmas hook into the hole which helped it fit easily on the tree.
Red and Green Mushrooms
Same as above- once made, we melted everything but the top bead to allow for the ornament hook.
Star and Mushroom Tree
Don’t forget while melting to leave room for the hook.
Success! You're on the list.

This Mario Santa turned out super cute! Made with sand, black, white and red Perler beads. Will also work for Hama or just plain melty beads.

As soon as I made this one, all three of my kids and my husband all came in and said “Brown?” Apparently he should have been yellow! Original pixel art- Kandi Patterns. Used dark brown, black, and white Perler Beads (However should have used yellow according to my family!)
Original – Google Zoeken. Interesting Design, made with black, light green, and green beads. Hoping to put something coming out of it on canvas soon.
Back in the day this was my absolute favorite part of Super Mario 3! Add to that, the awesome part of changing into a statue in the boot and my teenage brain was screaming. Original pixel designer – friendship bracelets.net. Beads used, red, black, tan, light green, dark green, gray, and white.
13. Ice Flower
Unfortunately the original designer of this image is a dead link. This is an awesome ice flower using Perler beads of blue, light blue, glitter blue, white, black, green, and light green.
Super Mario Spring, made with green, light green, white, black, brown and dark brown Perler beads. Original by Ruben Franco
15. Super Mario Star Earrings
These cute little stars were made using a pixel image from Kandi Patterns. I used the pattern to make the star out of Mini Perler Beads. I then 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.
