Legend of Zelda Perler Bead Art Scene

Ever wanted a Perler Bead or Hama Bead pattern that you could spend time happily crafting so that you can melt it and put it in a framed picture for the wall? This classic piece is from the Super Nintendo Legend of Zelda – A Link to the Past.

Made with over 3,800 Perler Beads and 6 grids! Original design xpeachart or cocomademosielle depending on which pin you look at.

This one did take a few hours to create. If you recreate this pattern, I would suggest getting a large piece of cardboard or cardboard box to lay underneath the grids.

We used a medium shipping box from Walmart, cut in half like the first picture below. (One box should make two large pieces with two of the sides of the box in each piece.) Then we laid the grids on top of one side. Once the scene was complete and before ironing, we used the masking tape method to tape the entire picture. (If you would like to learn more about this method, Perler has a great tutorial on their site.) Once the masking tape was secure, we were able to fold the top side of the box down and enclosed the grid inside (basically a grid sandwich with the cardboard on both sides). This made flipping the grids so much easier!

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted the scene to have the pixel look so after ironing, ours turned out like this..

Zelda Perler 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

 

#6- Rupees

Zelda Rupees- Perler Hama PatternsOriginal 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yellow and Green Zelda Rupee Perler Hama Bead Pattern

#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
