fairy and gnome perler beads

If this is your first time here, I’ve got a spoiler alert for you: we love gnomes. Those mythical little creatures that live underground and protect treasures.

OR sit on our front stoop as a garden gnome.

I’m not sure if gnomes would appreciate being called “cute,” but they are. I’d imagine guardians of treasure would prefer being called “tough,” but I can’t say for sure.

I can say one thing for sure though. Well, two. One – not only do we love gnomes, but we love perler beads. And two? We have some great gnome perler beads to share with you today!

There are over 25 patterns that I know you’re going to love. They’re a super easy spring or summer craft if the kids get bored. Not that you can’t make them any time of year.

In fact, gnomes are popular around Christmas too! I think they might be hired to help deliver some packages? When there aren’t enough elves. That’s what I’ve heard, anyway!

Not only do you get perler patterns for gnomes, but you’ll also get fairies, animals, and mushrooms. Oh, and you definitely have to see our mushroom perler beads! There are some cute houses over there.

Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with your elementary age kids (and up). 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.

Are you ready to try the patterns? Check them below! Don’t forget, you can customize them with your own colors. You don’t have to do what I did. Happy crafting!

Gnome Hama Beads

Make sure to check out these notes:

  • 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.”
  • Some of these patterns use a round pegboard; you’ll definitely want in your arsenal just generally speaking.
  • 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).
