Bird Perler Bead Patterns

Birds are so much fun to make with perler beads. On this page I have included several patterns to make bird designs with perler beads and regular geometric shaped pegboards. You'll find a wise owl, a bright red cardinal, a graceful swan, a cute chick, and more. I have included the type and size of the pegboard you'll need and also the color and number of beads I have used in each design. Feel free to change the colors for the birds if you like.

And if you have a request for another bird, you can leave it in my guestbook at the end of this page and I'll see what I can do.

Design your own perler bead patterns

All the bird perler bead patterns on this page were designed by me and were produced using this fun fuse bead pattern design software.

I have seen the beads before but had no idea as to their purpose. Now I know. What wonderful crafts these would be for young and old alike.

I did not realize beads could involve patterns. I always thought people just did as painters do, go from looking at the subject. Quite interesting. I suppose an image could be places below, and a semi-transparent piece of paper with circles could be used to map bead placement from any image.
