Get ready to make your own duck face with the help of this adorable Perler bead duck pattern!
Duck Perler Beads
One of my favorite animals are ducks. I have absolutely no idea why, but I think baby ducks are one of the cutest things on Earth. So, when we were making a duck out of beads, it obviously turned into a baby duck face.
This easy Perler bead pattern is great for kids who are just starting off making their own bead creations. It uses a few different colors, but the pattern itself is easy to follow.
Ironing should definitely be done by a responsible adult, but the pattern itself can be made by little creators.

We used a 15×15 square pegboard for this pattern, but the pattern measures seven beads wide by eight beads high, so any board with that space available would work just fine.
A Note About Using Tweezers
As always, we used tweezers, because it makes working with the beads so. much. easier.
We used to attempt to make the patterns without using tweezers and would get frustrated when we’d accidentally knocked over a bead or our hands slipped and the design got ruined. Tweezers were a game-changer.
If your child is just starting with bead creations – or even if they have been doing it for a while – spend a few dollars to get a pair of tweezers and they’ll love making the patterns so much more.
These are the tweezers we use and they work great:
