I’ve included easy and quick Perler bead football patterns to play pretend with or display, as well as more complicated stuff, like a football field Perler bead project.

And there’s nothing more exciting for NFL fans than the start of the playoff season, so I’ve also included some of the NFL teams’ logos below.

3 Materials for Football Perler Beads

Before we kick things off, make sure that you’ve got the adequate Perler bead supply and materials to start your training!

For easier patterns for the uninitiated, here’s my guide to easy Perler bead patterns, where beginners can have fun with simpler patterns.

1. Perler Beads Supply

The football and the field have consistent colors in any match, namely orange and brown, and green, but the NFL logos will certainly contain different colors, such as the purple of the Baltimore Ravens’ logo.

Here’s a tray of Perler beads that will satisfy your color needs, whether it’s for the logos or other patterns!

2. Large Square Pegboards

Just like football, Perler bead activities need a playing field to assemble their Perler bead pieces, so to speak. These square pegboards are exactly what you need for almost 90% of all Perler bead activities.

The best part about these pegboards is that they can be interlocked for larger, more sophisticated patterns.

3. Glow in the Dark Perler Beads

Try something unfamiliar and exciting with this glow-in-the-dark set of Perler beads. You’ll always be proud of your creation when you see that NFL logo glowing on your wall.
