Get over 50 patterns for Harry Potter perler beads! All of your favorite Hogwarts characters are included, so grab your hama beads and enjoy.
I remember when the Harry Potter series came out. I was 20 years old and you can bet your sweet bippy I bought the books. The Philosopher’s Stone was the first, and I read it the same day I bought it.
Since the release of the first novel, six more books have been released – and a total of more than 600 million copies have been sold. That makes Harry Potter the best selling book series in history!
But that isn’t all.
Cause there are movies too. Which, I haven’t seen all of the movies – but I have seen the first four. There are eight total. This thing is a multi billion dollar franchise, my friends.
I’m guessing you’ve probably read the books and seen the movies too. And maybe you’re ready to get creative with some cute Harry Potter crafts?
I’ve got a great – no mess – idea for you. Harry Potter perler beads!
This is a great way to introduce your kids to the Harry Potter series. I can’t believe it’s been 26 years since the first book, but it has – and (if you haven’t already), you can start to share the wizarding world with your children.
My niece is just starting to get into Harry Potter (she’s ten), so she and I made a bunch of patterns together (cause she also love perler beads).
I’m excited to share them with you today! There are several on my list, and they’re all free for you to try. I’ve got all the characters, symbols, house crests, and tons of other patterns you’re going to love.
Harry Potter fans are going to go crazy for these projects.
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with your littles. Children 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 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 Harry Potter 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 (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. 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 if you’re ready for the Harry Potter perler beads, here are the patterns.
Harry Potter 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.”
- 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).
- I typically start with easier, smaller patterns and then move onto the harder ones. You’ll see several different versions of the characters; just keep scrolling!
- The Harry Potter saga uses a lot of gold and silver just generally speaking. You can substitute them with a shade of yellow or light gray in a pinch.
