Trendy Buffalo Check Perler Bead Christmas Ornaments with FREE Patterns
Over the summer I introduced my two little boys to Perler Beads.

I remember loving playing with them when I was little so it was no surprise that they took right to them.

Perler Beads are great for practicing hand-eye coordination, following patterns, and creative play when they come up with their own designs.

And there is no reason that their creative play can’t help you have some fun new trendy decor for Christmas!

Buffalo check is a hot pattern right now so how fun would it be to use that pattern to make Christmas ornaments in a form that the kids can make.

I have designed 3 Christmas buffalo check ornament patterns that you can download here.

They include a poinsettias, a reindeer head, and ho, ho, ho with holly.

For the colors you will need black, dark gray, light gray, white, red, green, dark brown, gold, and 3 shades of pink.

And here is a break down of how many Perler beads you will need for each ornament:

Ho Ho Ho (Black 112, White 112, Dark Gray 108, Light Gray 114, Red 65, Green 28, Gold 19)

Poinsettia (Black 120, White 84, Dark Gray 88, Light Gray 88, Red 160, Gold 24)

Deer (Dark Pink 119, Pink 114, Light Pink 117, Brown 81, Gold 19)

You will also need large, square Perler bead boards.

And, though not necessary, the plastic tweezers for Perler beads come in super handy!

Once the patterns are made, iron the Perler Beads for your child per the directions that come with them.

Be sure that the “hook” at the top is melted well so that you don’t have to worry about it breaking when hanging.

Hi Michele, I just adore your deer pattern. Thank you for sharing all the details about it! I crafted it today with blue shades because I can't seem to find 3 different shades of pink. I use Hama beads (Germany) and their colour chart doesn't offer such colours. May I ask where you got your pink ones? Thank you!

I find almost all of my Perler beads at Joann stores. They have quite a collection of colors!

My son and his friends used to make tons of perler bead creations. I'm sure we still have a few minecraft creepers and steve hanging around the house. Last year I made Elf, from the movie Elf, out of perler beads. These ornaments are so cute. Thanks for sharing your patterns.
