Get over 50 patterns for Batman perler beads! If you love the comic books and movies, you’ll enjoy these patterns made for kids or adults.
I grew up in a house full of brothers, so we were always excited about superheroes. I mean every kid is excited about superheroes, right? it’s one of the first things you want to be when you grow up.
It’s because the life of a superhero is something else. You’re always rich, you have a butler (and a very clean home), and you’re capable of creating awesome tools and supercars to bring your city justice.
For example, I think we all know of Batman. I liked the show with Adam West when I was young (reruns), and the movie with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson came out when I was 12.
And if you think about it – there’s something very special about Batman. Bruce Wayne doesn’t have any super powers. He’s just a regular guy like you and me.
Call me cheesy, but that speaks to the potential inside all of us. You don’t need superpowers to make an impression on this world! You might need to be rich but that’s another blog post 😮
Anyhoo, my family loves the Batman movies. We’ve seen them all.
My niece and I talked all about Batman, Robin, Joker, and all the characters as we put together these Batman perler beads for you to enjoy!
If you love Batman too – or any of the characters (heroes, villians, and women included too) – you’re going to love these patterns. There are over 50 of them, from easy to more advanced.
There are also patterns from every era of Batman including Adam West’s time, Batman Forever, the Dark Knight, etc. If we’re missing anything you’d like to see, we’d love to hear in the comments. We’re always making new patterns.
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with your elementary age kids. All children seem to love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy – adults love them too!
Tips for Using Perler Beads
Before re we get into the patterns, I want to review a few basics of using fuse beads to make sure you get the best results. If you don’t want the tips, scroll down to the bottom to get the Batman perler bead patterns.
Remember that the overall goal is to melt the beads together on both sides while still leaving the holes open. Here’s how you get the best results (using Baby Yoda as an example).
Use Ironing or Parchment Paper
Place ironing paper or parchment paper over the beads on the pegboard. Be gentle so you don’t disturb the beads underneath.
Heat your iron to the medium setting (no steam). In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. Don’t press down too hard with the iron. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Check and make sure your edges are melted. Let the design cool on the pegboard.
Note: BE CAREFUL about lifting up the paper while you’re ironing! If you want to check, carefully peel back paper around the edge of your design and see if all the beads are melted.
If you lift the paper up quickly and there are a lot of unmelted beads, they will easily fall off or go flying and you may be forced to start over. Sometimes the edges need more time so when you check, just check the edges and peel paper back slowly.
Another Note: some beads melt faster than others (clear melts faster than white, for example). So some holes might be larger than others. It’s okay! That’s part of the look of the project.
Iron the Other Side
Remove the bead design from the pegboard. Flip it over to the non-melted side and repeat the fusing process.
Remove the Paper
Let cool completely and remove the paper again (which is reusable). Some people pull the paper off after they iron the first side, but I just wait until the end and peel off both pieces. It’s up to you!
Let’s dive into the patterns, shall we?
Batman Hama Beads
- A few of these patterns are larger than a 29 x 29 pegboard, so you’ll either need a extra large pegboard (49 x 69 tall) or to put multiple square peg boards together to form a larger “canvas.”
- You’ll see a couple of the pattern backgrounds below aren’t white – that’s simply to give contrast so you can see where all the white beads should go. You don’t need to add the background (but you can if you want to).
- In addition to square pegboards, you’ll see round and hexagon pegboards. These are fun to have in your arsenal if you plan to do a lot of perler-ing.
- You don’t have to stick to my color choices. A lot of times I just use what I have on hand, so feel free to customize.
- I typically start with easier, smaller patterns in my list and then move on to the more difficult ones. If you’re looking for something a bit more advanced, just keep scrolling!
