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. Colorful Christmas Tree

Just as a tree changes its colors when the fall arrives, so too will your Christmas tree lose its evergreen after dressing it with colorful lights!

Videogames shows how it looks like when done properly.

5. 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.

6. 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 PerlerPixie‘s pattern.

The face of Rudolph is not complete without his adorable red nose. Despite its size, this pattern by aceofseas still manages to include that iconic, snotty nose.

21. Playful Rudolph

Rudolph tries to conceal his big nose by hiding it in plain sight—among Christmas ball ornaments. Not even my three-year-old nephew will be fooled by this tactic, implemented by roguishgive.
