Bugs and Butterflies Perler Bead Patterns

I have a fascination with all kinds of creatures. And bugs are no exception – even if some of them are a pest in my garden! So I have been creating a collection of perler bead bug patterns. Here you'll find several patterns for pretty butterflies, a cute bee, a little ladybug, a funny spider, and more.

For each design, I will tell you which pegboard you will need and also the color and number of perler beads needed to complete the project. But of course you can change the color to your own choice. A cute project would be to make one of these critters then glue it onto a stick and poke it into a flowerpot or in the garden.

And I promise that these perler bead bugs will not eat any of your vegetables or flowers.

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