If you love pretty florals, get over 35 free and easy patterns for flower perler beads! Get roses, sunflowers, daisies, and more. These are great for spring, summer, Mother’s Day, and more.
Do you love flowers? Of course you do – everyone loves flowers! At least that’s how I always felt when I would consider potential careers. And why for a time I thought I wanted to be a floral delivery person.
Think about it. Who can be upset when you show up with a bundle of beautiful blooms in their hands? No one! I pictured smiling faces, happiness, and lots of tips.
Until I realized you have to deliver sympathy flowers as well. Aaaaand with that realization, my dreams were crushed.
I guess there is a downside to every job, even if said employment is designed to make people happy. Even if flowers make people happy!
With spring here and summer right around the corner, I’m excited to share over 35 floral perler bead patterns that everyone is going to love. Whether you ever wanted to be a florist or not.
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with your elementary age children (or older). All kids seem to love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy – adults love them too!
You can also add these little guys to houseplants or just display them around the home. Like I said at the beginning of this post – who doesn’t love flowers? They just add a bright pop of color everywhere you go!
Tips for Using Perler Beads
Before we get into the flower hama beads, 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 patterns and tutorial.
Remember that the overall goal is to melt the beads together on both sides while still leaving the holes open. Here’s how you achieve success (with a rainbow 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. I use a small craft iron and a tight, circular motion. I keep the iron going at all times.
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!
Now that you’ve had a refresher on how to melt the beads, you can get the patterns! Keep on reading.
Flower 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.”
- 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’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).
- Don’t stick to my colors necessarily. Customize with your favorite color beads! Flowers are great for using up extra beads, especially the small patterns.
- I typically start with easier or smaller patterns in my list and then move on to the more difficult ones. You’ll see several different versions of florals with progressive patterns; just keep scrolling!
