Perler Bead Kits are a Fun Halloween Project for Kids
Halloween Perler Fused Bead Kits are such an easy and fun craft! They are the perfect Halloween craft for parents to make with their children. After they make their first kit design, kids love to create their own designs. Even though they need their parents help when fusing the beads together, in just a very short amount of time, kids will have their own work of art to give as gifts or to keep for themselves.
My children always enjoyed making the little Perler Bead kits. I have wonderful memories of watching my children and their friends gathered around the kitchen table, putting together their Perler Bead designs and waiting with great anticipation for me to fuse the beads together for a finished project. They were always so proud of their creations!

Quick and Easy Perler Bead Fusing Instructions
How to Make a Halloween Perler Bead Kit Project
1) Working on a counter top, table or ironing board, assemble your Perler bead design by placing Perler beads on a Perler peg board. Work from the inside out of the pattern or from one side to the other.
2) Fusing should be done by an adult. Cover the beads with the ironing paper. Using a dry iron set to the medium heat setting, carefully “iron” the beads in a gentle circular motion for about 10 seconds to fuse the beads together.
3) Allow to cool. Peel off the ironing paper.
4) Remove the design from the peg board and flip it over. Cover it with the ironing paper and iron the other side to fuse it.
Note: Ironing paper and peg Boards are reusable.

Perler Bead Tutorials – Halloween Perler Beads Kits and Projects
Perler Bead kits contain everything you need to make your Perler project.
However, some times we want to think outside the box, that is, the craft box. We can create our own designs and make awesome perler bead projects by simply purchasing the Perler templates/pegboards and separately sold beads (both featured below for purchase)
If you have previously purchased Perler Bead kits, the templates are reusable so there is no need to purchase additional pegboards.
Here are a few video tutorials of designs others have created by using spare beads.

Make Your Own Halloween Perler Fused Bead Kit
If you prefer to make your own design, Perler Bead peg boards and Perler Beads can be purchased separately below. Grab a simple cross stitch pattern that you like, and help your child create their own unique Halloween craft masterpiece.
Beads and Peg Boards
Perler Bead peg boards are necessary when making perler bead craft projects. They literally have pegs that hold the beads in place while you lay out the design. They go right into the oven and serve as a “tray” for your design as it melts together.
If I am creating my own Perler bead kit, I do enjoy a variety of colored beads, so I would recommend purchasing the multi-mix color jar instead of separate colors. Always keep any leftover Perler Beads from kits and add them to your jar for future projects.
