Minecraft Perler Beads (40+ Patterns!)

Get over 40 patterns for Minecraft perler beads! There are a variety of characters and symbols from this best selling sandbox video game.

Did you know that Minecraft is the best selling video game in history? Yes. Released in November 2011, it’s currently at 238 million copies sold. Yes, that’s million (insert Dr. Evil).

The next best selling video game is Grand Theft Auto V at 175 million copies. Guys! This is crazy. I had no idea video games sold like that.

That means that technically, just looking at statistics, the equivalent of approximately 72% of the country owns Minecraft.

And while I don’t personally own the game, I can verify the statistic to a certain extent given that all the children around me play it! Including my niece, who is obsessed.

And if you’re here, that means either you love the game or you have kids that do. Either way, I’m excited to share these Minecraft perler beads with you. My niece and I had great fun putting these together!

While we were crafting, she was telling me everything she loves about the game. She likes “playing with different people, being able to create her own cities, and talking about the game with friends.”

At one point she loved the merch too, but she’s kind of outgrown that.

I find it interesting that it’s not just a game for my niece. It’s a creative outlet! And of course, so are the perler beads.

We made patterns for Steve, creepers, tools, resources, animals, and some other aspects of the game. There are so many elements in Minecraft that we couldn’t get them all. If you have a request 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 children. They love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy – adults love them too!

Now if you’re ready for the Minecraft perler beads, here are the patterns.

Hama Beads Minecraft

  • 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).
  • Don’t stick to my colors necessarily. Customize with your favorite color beads.
  • 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!

Steve (Gold Steve and Diamond Steve too), Dirt Block

Each of these square blocks uses 64 beads (8 x 8).

Thank you so much for these patterns! My almost 7 year old son is OBSESSED with Minecraft. He is doing mini 4H this year and these patterns are helping him complete his craft exhibit. He has studied the patterns, calculated how beads we need of each color and planning our shopping trip to acquire the missing colors. Thank you again!

I have recently started getting back into perler beads as an adult (I’m in my thirties) and your webpage has been a great source of patterns for me. I am currently making Minecraft stuff for my nephews birthday. Thank you for all that you create and share!
