And print as many as you would like.

Organize your Perler beads by color for easy access.

Step 2: Prepare the Perler Bead Pegboard 

Place the Perler bead pegboard on a flat surface. 

If creating a large design from the template, multiple pegboards may be needed. 

Arrange the pegboards based on the pattern’s size and shape.

Step 3: Follow the Template 

Refer to the Back to School Perler Bead Patterns template and select your desired design. 

Start by placing the appropriate colored beads on the pegboard by copying the pattern. 

Be careful to align the beads correctly to create a crisp and clean design.

Step 4: Iron the Beads *parent/teacher/guardian supervision required*

Once you have completed the design, it’s time to fuse the beads together. 

Preheat an iron to a medium setting, without steam. 

Place a sheet of ironing paper over your design.

Start ironing the beads in a circular motion for about 10-20 seconds. 

Be sure to apply gentle pressure to ensure the beads fuse together properly. 

Lift the iron occasionally to check the progress, but try to avoid excessive ironing.

Step 5: Cooling and Removing the Design 

Allow the fused design to cool for a few minutes before removing it from the pegboard. 

Once cool, carefully peel the design off the pegboard. 

Flip it over and place it back on the ironing paper.

Cover it with the paper and iron the reverse side for a few seconds to ensure a solid bond.

Step 6: Display and Enjoy 


Your Back to School Perler bead pattern is now complete. 

Attach it to a corkboard, frame it, or turn it into a magnet. 

Let your creativity guide you in showcasing your unique creation proudly.
