6 Harry Potter Perler Bead Designs

I don't always do weekly themes on my blog but every once in a while it is kind of fun and apparently July is the month of weekly themes. Last week I did projects with a Christmas in July theme, and this week I want to do a Harry Potter theme since this week would be Harry's 40th birthday. 

Earlier this month I shared a crocheted Hedwig as part of a Harry Potter themed blog hop, but I wanted to do a little more to celebrate The Boy Who Lived. Most of the projects I have planned for this week are a little more kid friendly crafts, since I know in my house at least my kids are big Harry Potter fans as well. 


For this first project of the week I chose one of my kids favorite crafts. They love it when we pull out the Perler Beads, or fuse beads. Whether it is to follow patterns to make specific designs or just play with colors and patterns as they fill in the shaped boards. 


Here I made a few different simple Harry Potter themed designs with graphs that you can follow. There are 6 different designs, all made on a square board. I wanted to keep it really simple so I used a basic 14x14 peg square, which in my experience seems to be the most common size to be included in basic sets of fuse beads. 


The six designs included in this set are a Deathly Hallows, a Sorting Hat, a Golden Snitch, an Owl, a Hogwarts Letter, and House Colors.



How to Make Harry Potter Perler Bead Designs


You will need:


Instructions:


Put the beads on the peg board following the colors on the graph.

Cover the design with the paper and iron at medium heat for 10-15 seconds or until the beads start to fuse together.

Take it off the peg board and paper, flip over and repeat on the other side.

If you want you can add magnets to the back to turn them into a fun set of Harry Potter magnets.
