Materials for Perler Bead Activities

5 Bite-Sized Watermelons

Watermelons are huge. Some varieties can grow up to 200 pounds! The first five watermelons are small, and thus easier to digest—especially for Perler bead beginners.

Be wary of any seeds left for small children since these are a choking hazard.

But there’s no need to worry about the danger of seeds when making watermelon Perler beads, such as this design shared by Kittycat1234.

2. Minecraft Watermelon

This watermelon cut presented by The Daisy Tree is the most common way to enjoy the fruit.

A Minecraft enjoyer easily recognizes this common treat found in the game.

3. Dripping Watermelon

Grab a paper towel because devouring this watermelon—shared by hoodiestrings—will get messy.

It’s impressive how just a few beads can create such a dripping effect. The detail only works when the flesh is facing down; otherwise, it would be ignoring the laws of gravity.

Nothing screams summer more than a watermelon-flavored popsicle stick to relieve us from the intense heat.

It’s not unusual to see fields of crawling watermelons during the summer. A scenery of such is presented to us by nastya_fw in their compact watermelon crop pattern.

3 Larger Watermelons

It’s impossible to not include huge watermelon patterns in this list. Though big, these patterns aren’t too difficult to create.

6. Take a Bite at This Watermelon!

If the watermelon sounds hollow when tapped, it’s usually a good indicator of its sweetness.

Since tapping or smelling the watermelon is not possible here, the only option is the visual cues.

If it has a creamy yellow spot, like the tiny detail found in this pattern shared by HollyS, then there’s a good chance that it’s ripe.

7. Evil Watermelon

Pumpkins are the go-to option during Halloween, but what if you need decoration during the summer?

Take inspiration from PerlerPixie‘s evil watermelon—a Perler bead pattern of a carved watermelon, probably emptied of its flesh and seeds.

Of course, there’s no issue with going traditional: pumpkin Perler beads.

8. Sliced Watermelon

It takes some skill to cut a watermelon—let alone slice it in half. That’s why being able to do it so effortlessly in games like Fruit Ninja is so addicting.

Fortunately, we don’t need to be a samurai to enjoy such a satisfying portrait shared by STech.

Disclaimer: no watermelons were harmed in making this article.
