My Little Pony Perler Bead Patterns

by Christene

Free My Little Pony Friendship is Magic patterns for fusible 5mm plastic beads.

Fuse bead brands include Perler, Hama, Nabbi, and Pyssla, though I'm just going to be using Perler brand colors in descriptions below.

My daughter started using Perler beads in her Montessori days, about 7 years ago. She basically stuck to the patterns that came with various bead kits, or just filled in every spot of shaped peg boards to her liking. The older you get the more elaborate pieces you can create. They aren't just for little kids!

I've seen some amazing MLP FiM creations with Perler beads. Magnets, wall decorations, coasters, keychains, bracelets, necklaces, headbands, barrettes and even business card holders. People are creating faces, profiles, whole bodies, and cutie marks with their beads. Some are crazy good!

I was looking through Pinterest and found some necklaces by a now defunct etsy store and decided to make new Perler bead patterns like those to share with you here. These are the faces of the 'mane six' ponies, looking head on. I don't have a Perler bead pattern generator, I just made these in PhotoShop. Hope you like them. :)

I'll also link you to some of my favorite MLP FiM fuse bead creations online.

How to Use Perler Beads

Step 1
Choose your pattern and beads.
Make sure you have all the colors and amounts you need before you start.

Step 2
Arrange the beads on your peg board following the pattern.
Tweezers are not required. We just use our fingers to place them.

Step 3
Place the ironing paper on top of the finished design and iron over it.
You don't want it to melt too much, just enough to stick them all together.

Step 4
Remove the now fused together beads, turn it over, place the ironing paper back, and iron the other side.
If you're adding a string to hang your bead creation it's best to add it before this last step so the hole doesn't completely close up.

So those are my made from scratch MLP FiM Perler bead patterns. I literally filled in little circles with color one at a time. LOL. I didn't want to make patterns that were too complicated, this being my first attempt. I know software would make the process very easy, but where's the fun in that. :P

The 3 PDFs I've linked to above are for 8 1/2" x 11" paper. Two patterns on each sheet. When you print them full size you should be able to place them right under a clear or transparent pegboard and place the beads right on top. It might be a good idea to print out two copies, one for under the board and one to look at unobstructed. You could also use an opaque board and just count out how many beads of a certain color go in a row.

You'll need to use a large peg board for these patterns. Rainbow Dash just barely fit's on a small square board, but the others won't. I just made her today, using a large square board, pics are below. I didn't have the creme or light blue beads, so I used yellow and a translucent blue in their place. After ironing I realized I got one of the blue beads wrong. The center under the yellow bead should have been dark. Sigh.
