St. Patrick's Day Perler Bead Designs

St. Patrick's Day is this week so we pulled out our bucket of Perler Beads this weekend to make some fun St. Patrick's Day crafts with the kids. Anytime I am looking for a kid craft that will keep my kids busy for a long time I turn to the melty beads. 

Every time we end up making Perler Bead designs the bucket of beads stays out for a long time and the kids have fun playing with them and creating. I love anything that encourages that creativity I my kids so I love it. 


I enjoy coming up with designs we can make for different seasons, holidays, or themes, so I really wanted to make some St. Patrick's Day themed designs. 

These include a 4 leaf clover, a rainbow, the end of the rainbow, a pot of gold, a leprechaun hat, and an Irish Flag. 



How to Make St. Patrick's Day Perler Bead Designs


You will need:


  • Perler Beads in a variety of colors
  • Square pegboard (at least 14 x 14 pegs)
  • Ironing Paper
  • Iron (I love using my Cricut EasyPress Mini for Perler Beads)

Instructions:



Follow the graphs to create the designs. 

When finished cover with paper and press to melt the beads together. Remove from the pegboard, flip, cover, and press on other side.
