18 Cheery Christmas Perler Bead Patterns

Deck the halls with some of the most attractive Christmas Perler bead patterns you can make!

Kids are impatient to open their presents on Christmas morning. But before they tear apart the carefully wrapped gifts under the Christmas tree, hand them these Perler bead activities so the gifts feel extra rewarding.

Let’s get on with it, shall we?

4 Christmas Perler Bead Kits

For a hassle-free experience, check out these Perler bead kits with a Christmas theme. These kits have been prepared and designed solely for the Christmas season.

With these, you’ll be able to create festive winter designs, like candy canes, snowmen, reindeers; special Christmas wreaths; and, a couple of nice 3D Perler bead projects.

1. Christmas Perler Bead Kit

We love to decorate our homes with a traditional festive motif; why not consider other winter designs that will complement those Christmas designs nicely?

For that reason, I’ve included this small Perler bead packet containing around 2,000 Perler beads, which, assembled, create 13 different winter Perler bead projects.

2.  Christmas Tree 3D Perler Bead Kit

There’s no such thing as too many Christmas trees inside a single household. Have a big one in your living room, then have another small one made of Perler beads in your kids’ bedroom.

I love this 3D Christmas tree because of its eye-catching base star shape from which you build up the tree. Of course, it’s topped off by a regular Christmas tree star.

3. Christmas Wreath Kit

If the traditional wreath you keep making year after year is starting to feel tiresome, you have the option of making a refreshing one through this incredible kit.

The big red ribbon is an eye-catcher for me. Anyone can create their favorite seasonal characters provided in the pattern sheet like Santa, gingerbread man, or Frosty the Snowman.

4. 3D Christmas Holiday Village Kit

Really get into character and feel like Santa’s entire workshop village is in your home with this 3D Christmas Holiday kit.

Children who behaved well this year are perfect candidates for receiving a gift like this. Creating a mini world with Perler beads is a great way to pass the time for children, enhancing their fine motor skills, and stimulating their creativity through imaginative play.

It’s exciting and heartwarming to see our little ones assemble Perler beads for the first time. For an easy Christmas tree design for kids, check out this basic pattern seen on Brik.

As those tiny tots gain better control over their fine motor skills, the complexity of patterns should be increased to match their skill level. But a pattern that’s too difficult might soon become overwhelming.

Luckily, hihi8 on Bracelet Book provides a pattern that’s not too easy nor too hard; similar to Goldilock’s preference, the difficulty is just right.

3. 3D Christmas Tree

Certain designs, like the Christmas tree, look flat in 2D. We do not want to see the Christmas tree simply laying down, but standing majestically upright. But 3D designs seem so difficult to produce.

Worry not, because that’s what The Cents’Able Shoppin shares in their guide—a 3D Christmas tree easy enough for kids to replicate.

To convince you that 3D designs aren’t too difficult, here are 3D Perler bead patterns you should check out.

4. Decorated Christmas Tree

Most of the time, it’s the 2D patterns that are more intricate and tough to create. It’s the subtle changes in color that make a design like this one by bbbytes challenging.

Formidable as they might seem, these complex designs reward whoever undertakes and finishes them.

5. Kawaii Super Mario Christmas Tree

Christmas is also celebrated in other imagined worlds, like that of the Mario brothers. Create one of the most adorable Perler bead Christmas tree by following Frost’s Entertainment’s guide.

Longtime fans will appreciate these Mario Perler bead patterns. For other adorable patterns, I also suggest our list of kawaii Perler bead patterns.

The Yuletide season is a great introduction to different symbols. For example, the Christmas wreath represents eternal life, symbolized by the circular shape and evergreen plant.

Teach them about Christmas symbols while making this pattern by Crumpet.

7. 3D Holiday Wreath

The Christmas wreath as shown here in Meg’s video tutorial has a depth aspect provided by the white and red flowers.

The method for attaching the flower to the wreath is quite interesting, and should only be done by adults. Check out the tutorial to learn more.

8. Ornament Cards

Christmas is also a time of giving presents and showing appreciation for loved ones. Perler has the perfect greeting card that children can give to their grandparents, or any cherished family member.

9. Christmas Gift

Christmas eve—it’s the point at which children are at their excitement limit. That’s because they get to open the Christmas presents the next morning.

Before that, though, share this pattern by amusedpumpkin with your children and do something productive before the big release on Christmas day.
