22 Snowflake Perler Beads That Won’t Melt

Winter has come, but you don’t have to weather through it alone; these snowflake Perler beads (coupled with some jolly snowmen) will keep your hands warm during afternoon activities.

No two snowflakes are identical – that makes it possible for Perler bead hobbyists to experiment with a ton of different, unique patterns.

There’s no need to hesitate if you’re a beginner because I’ve included basic snowflake patterns which you could replicate with ease. As you scroll through, the patterns become more like guidelines than templates that you can play around with.

Materials Needed for Santa Perler Beads:

3 Snowflake Perler Bead Kits

I understand that trying to collect the right color of fuse beads for your crafts can become tedious sometimes. For that reason (and for your convenience) I’ve included these snowflake Perler bead kits.

All of these kits will provide you with the essentials to make the most basic or intricate snowflake design.

Small Perler Beads Snowflake Kit

This small Perler bead kit equips anyone with the basic materials needed to make a simple snowflake.

Are you confident to make a unique snowflake pattern? I highly recommend this fuse bead kit—which includes small and big beads (transparent, white, blue, gold), pegboards, a pair of tweezers, and an instruction sheet to check when in doubt.

14 Snowflake Perler Beads

Here are the awaited snowflake Perler bead patterns. As mentioned earlier, the first several items are templates for the uninitiated.

The items in the latter half are much like guidelines that serve to inspire you rather than strict templates you need to duplicate.

1. The Most Basic Snowflake

While the way a snowflake involves intricate and unpredictable factors—humidity and temperature—the arrangement of a snowflake is not rocket science.

Here’s zosiaaa putting a snowflake together, bead by bead.

2. Six-Point Snowflake Pattern

Most snowflakes are structured in a hexagonal lattice. That’s what makes them so fascinating.

Look at knbloves1d, a user who makes a plain yet colored snowflake template using a hexagon pegboard.

3. Simple Snowflake

As specks of snowflakes fall from the sky, other raindrops attach to them—forming intricate and symmetrical snowflakes that we’re all hypnotized with.

Some may even look like stars, like the one shown in this tutorial by Creative V‘s channel.

4. Rare Snowflake

Snowflakes don’t have to be perfectly symmetrical—at least not when we’re creating a Perler bead project out of it.

Here’s a perfect example of a mirrored snowflake by metallicbonemeal8 that’s not precisely symmetrical.

5. Round and Hexagonal Snowflakes Templates

Now we’re getting into the (snowy) territory of creating more unique snowflakes.

While these patterns from Jennifer’s Little World can serve as templates, you’re certainly free to take so-called creative liberties—adding flair to your snowflakes.

6. Diverse Snowflake Patterns

A closer look at these ice crystals will reveal that they’re neither white nor transparent. They’re actually translucent and it refracts light entering through them, making the light exit in another direction.

They’re also not blue like these snowflakes made by Frugal Fun 4 Boys, but sometimes they come off as that color.

7. Snowflake Perler Bead Template

You can take this snowflake pattern by Envato Tuts+ as it is, or modify its branches according to your preference.

Remember, there’s no wrong way of creating a snowflake.
