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.

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 patterns.  Once the designs were ironed and complete, my youngest son played an entire game pretending to catch Pokemon outside with all the different Pokeballs he created.

The patterns are below.  If you need additional Perler beads, Amazon has a massive 22,000 bead jar that you have to sort here.  OR if you would just rather have them presorted for you, then there is also a smaller set, which has only 4000. Not very many in that set, but they are presorted which will save you lots of time.

To make the designs…

Using either the circle or grid templates, design the patterns.  Then place a sheet of parchment paper over the design.  You can use special paper by Perler or honestly just grab a sheet of parchment paper from your kitchen and that will also do the trick. Then simply grab a household iron and melt the beads together.  This shouldn’t take longer than 10 -20 seconds on each side.

 Note: When melting them, feel free to melt them for however long works for your family. We used a full melt in this version, (where the colors blend completely together) but we also like to iron them lighter to give them a pixelated look.  Both versions will look great, no matter how you melt them!

The Original Pokeball using the circle template is found below.  The circle template, along with a few additional fun templates, can be found on Amazon or at your local Hobby Lobby or Joanns.   You can also make additional patterns and additional Pokeballs by just changing a few of the colors.  Maybe your child would like to create his/her very own special ball.
