Autumn Perler Bead Patterns 

Kids love perler beads! I know that mine have bags and bags of perler beads that they have created!

One of my favorite things about perler beads is that they are so good for developing fine motor skills! Having to pick up the small beads and place them in the right spots is an excellent way to have fun and to help your child develop all at the same time. 

It’s also a wonderful activity for helping to increase focus and concentration.

How to Make Perler Beads

If you’ve never made perler beads before you need to start by getting together everything you need. 

You will need a peg board to design your perler beads on. And you will need the actual perler beads that are made specifically for this project. 

Then use the perler bead pictures below to design your fall perler beads. You can see from the pics how many individual beads there are. Simply count the beads to know where to place them on the board.

And feel free to try different colors! We made a multicolored pumpkin, why not?! 

Once you’ve placed all of your perler beads in place you need to iron them to fuse them together

Perler beads can be made for any topic and any holiday! Some of the perler beads we have made are Minecraft Perler Beads, Perler Bead Magnets, Halloween Perler Beads and Easter Perler Beads!

Let’s get started making some fall perler beads!

This is another favorite of mine. We found this design on Pinterest. Sadly the site it was on is no longer available so I can’t show you where we found it. 

However it is a great design for fall! You can also experiment with this one and make your letters different colors and sizes as well.

The cornucopia, or horn of plenty, is another great perler bead design! We made a small one, but you make this as big as you’d like. By making it bigger you could add more detailed fruits within the horn.
