St. Patrick’s Day Perler Bead Pattern
Hi friends! If you’re here, chances are you’re a fan of St. Patrick’s Day. We are too! I don’t know what it is about the holiday, but I have always been drawn to the lucky green, shamrocks, rainbows and more. So today we’re adding to our long list of St. Patrick’s Day posts with this fun St. Patrick’s Day Perler Bead Printable Pattern!
What are perler beads, you may ask? Perler beads (also known as melty beads, hama beads and fuse beads) are colorful beads usually arranged on plastic pegboards to form patterns and then fused together with an iron. They can also be strung into necklaces, woven into keychains, or even assembled into three-dimensional decors. Today we’re showing you how to create adorable St. Patrick’s Day patterns using perler beads and our printable perler pattern.

How to Make St. Patrick’s Day Perler Beads
1. Print out your St. Patrick’s Day Perler Bead Pattern at 100% and arrange your pegboard on top of the pattern.
2. Follow the pattern to add Perler beads to the pegboard, creating a rainbow, pot of gold and more.
3. Once your desired bead pattern is finished, carefully place a piece of ironing paper over top the beads and iron (no water or steam) for several seconds or until you can see the beads start to fuse together.
4. Remove the iron and carefully pull the paper back off the pegboard (careful this will be hot) and peel the beads off the paper and immediately press flat with your pegboard.
