What are Perler beads?

Perler beads are small, cylindrical beads that are made from a non-toxic plastic. They’re also called “fuse beads” or “melty beads” because Perler beads are designed to be melted together!

You need a plastic pegboard to place the Perler beads on, and then you can create a pattern of your choice (like one of these beautiful snowflakes). Then cover the design with parchment paper and iron the beads together — the heat from the iron fuses the beads together into one piece!

How can I make my own Perler bead snowflake pattern?

You can follow along with our free snowflake patterns, but you can also easily create your own snowflakes! First, start in the center of the circular pegboard.

For some of our Perler bead snowflakes we have a bead in the very center, but you can also start your snowflake a row or two out from the middle. Then, work your way out so that the snowflake has 6 points.

You can create straight lines that are connected to each other, or you can create a web-like structure. Just make sure that each section of the snowflake is identical and equal.

  • Hang the snowflake as a window decoration or suncatcher
  • Attach a jump ring through the top bead and create a keychain
  • Create a coaster by filling in the rest of the circular pegboard with clear melty beads
  • Make a Christmas tree ornament by attaching ribbon or twine
  • Use a glue dot to attach snowflake(s) to cardstock and place them in a picture frame
  • Attach the snowflake to the front of a DIY greeting card
  • Make a brooch/badge by gluing a pin to the back of the snowflake
