Get over 10 patterns for Spider Man perler beads! With these patterns comes great responsibility. Both kids and adults will love them!
“Spiderman – nobody knows who you are!”
I’m aging myself, but the first time I watched anything Spiderman was on the Electric Company. The Electric Company was actually canceled in 1977 (the year of my birth!), at the height of its popularity.
I guess I watched it on reruns.
If you don’t remember the series because you’re not old like me, it was an educational kids’ TV show with sketches. The goal was to help children develop grammar and reading skills, and featured stars like Morgan Freeman and Rita Moreno.
It’s one of those shows that has stuck in my mind all these years later, including the sketch “Spidey’s Super Stories.” It had a very catchy theme song that I still remember!
Growing up with four brothers helped continue an avid love of superheroes throughout my childhood, including Spider Man.
Today I’m excited to share my love of “the man behind the mask” with you . . . via crafts, of course. You’re going to love these Spider Man perler beads. They were so fun to make!
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with kids. They 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 Spider Man fuse 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 perler beads 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. Keep the iron moving the entire time.
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!
Spiderman 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!
