Animal Perler Bead Patterns

Updated on December 19, 2014

Cute Animal Perler Bead Patterns

If you love making perler bead crafts and you love animals, you will enjoy these animal perler bead patterns. Click on the pictures to get a printable version of the pattern, including how many beads of each color you will need to complete the project.

This is a craft which boys and even adults will enjoy too. It gets quite addictive, so it's hard to make just one project. And you're bound to find a favorite animal on this page.

Note: Unless otherwise mentioned, I created all the perler / fuse bead pattern pictures featured on this page. They were created using special bead software, some my own designs and some based on public domain clipart.

All the perler bead pattern pictures shown on this page are available on

this fuse bead patterns page.

22,000 Perler Beads! - enough for many fun projects

A large square pegboard will use up to 841 beads (29x29) if you cover the whole board, so if you use up all the colors, you can make 26 large square projects from this container. That's less than $1 per project.

And many of the projects you will make don't cover the entire square, so you can do even more patterns.

Mini Perler Beads

If you want to create jewelry, hair decorations etc, you may prefer to use mini perler beads. How cute would it be to create a matching set of farm animal earrings and necklace!

Note: these beads are very tiny and trickier to handle. Recommended for age 10 and up.

Finishing Your Projects

How to Iron Your Perler Bead Creation

To make your bead picture stick together, you will iron it while it is still on the pegboard until the beads melt together. Be careful that you do not overdo it, else the beads become flattened and lose their center hole. Watch this video to see how it's done. Some people will only iron one side, but I find it sticks together better if you iron both sides.
