30 Ridiculously Cool SpongeBob Perler Beads

I’ve searched the depths of the ocean to find the best SpongeBob Perler bead patterns.

There’s a reason SpongeBob SquarePants is still watched by today’s generation: it’s funny, full of adventures, and includes memorable characters that children have come to love over the years.

Below, you’ll find simple fuse bead patterns for toddlers and difficult ones to challenge more advanced Perler bead enthusiasts.

3 Melty Bead Kits and Accessories

Stock up on materials with these kits and accessories that will make your Perler bead making easier.

If you’re just beginning this journey, I suggest checking out our easy Perler bead patterns post where you’ll be introduced to the basics of Perler bead making.

1. Bulk Fuse Beads Set

Once you start making more patterns, it’s easy to lose track of how many beads you’ve got in stock. They run out fast, so stock up!

This assorted fuse bead set is perfect when you want to be sure that there are some left for whenever you have a burst of motivation to make Perler bead projects (which is often, trust me).

2. Large Interlocking Pegboards

Many fuse bead projects are small enough that they can fit most small pegboards. But for bigger designs, you might need these large interlocking pegboards.

Pegboards are reusable so you don’t need to worry about buying them again in the future!

3. Perler Bead Sweeper

One of SpongeBob’s hobbies includes catching jellyfish with his net.

You can do the same thing with this Perler bead sweeper, which is a manual hand-held vacuum that quickly picks up scattered Perler beads on the table or floor.
