Use our free Halloween Perler bead patterns and have fun doing melty bead crafts with the kids this Halloween.
We’ve been crafting with our melty beads again, and we’ve come up a few simple Halloween perler bead patterns to share with you today.
(We call them melty beads at home, since they get melted together, but some people call them fuse beads, and the brand name is Perler. You may see the terms used interchangeably here.)
Our Halloween Perler Bead Patterns
We love playing with our Perler beads, and we created a page where we’re keeping more of our Perler bead patterns and designs that don’t necessarily go along with a holiday.
But, since we’re all excited about Halloween right now, we created some patterns that are perfect for this super-fun holiday. You’ll find the download link for the templates after each image.

Candy Corn Perler Bead Pattern
I mentioned when I made the Candy Corn brownie bite monsters how much we love candy corns at Halloween, so of course we had to make one with our melty beads!
Ghost Perler Bead Pattern
This little Halloween ghostie is on a mission!
Frankenstein Perler Bead Pattern
We made Frankenstein’s monster a little more cute than scary, but we absolutely love how he turned out. It makes me smile every time I see his little face. 🙂
Dracula Perler Bead Pattern
Of course, we had to include a Dracula design in our Halloween perler bead patterns. I hope you like him as much as we do!
These Halloween Perler bead designs were the first round that we made, but I think we’ll be coming up with more before we’re done with this season.
Easy Halloween Perler Bead Patterns for Kids
We’ve created some cute and easy Halloween Perler Bead patterns this year that the kids can complete in just a few minutes.
What I love about this set of Halloween bead designs is that they’re all pretty small and come together quickly. Sometimes the kids are up for detailed patterns, but most of the time we just want something small and simple to pass the time for a little bit.
Plus, with small and easy patterns, it gives who are just over playing for a little while a chance to finish their creations and take them home with them.
We had fun playing around with the different bead canvas shapes, and found the hexagon really useful for making the skull, bat, and cat head. We used the heart shape for the little ghost, and a regular square pegboard for the witch and pumpkin.
You can click the button below to print out the patterns for all of the Perler bead designs in this cute Halloween set.
I’ve shortlisted these cute designs that are all small and easy to do. They are especially curated for little awkward fingers and hands.
We can’t have Halloween without a carved pumpkin. Doesn’t it look quite friendly?

If you want a smaller ghost, you can check out this duo.
Tombstones are one of the staple decorations for Halloween. If your kids are dressing up as zombies, then some tombstones are a must.

Here’s a little witch with her pumpkin and owl friends. If you arrange your Perler bead works this way with some cotton and a couple of fake spiders, they make your décor even more aesthetic.
If you need a pattern for the witch, you can use this for reference. Just change the green to yellow or beige.
If you want your witch to look like the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz, you can keep the green skin color.

Happy Pumpkin Halloween Sign
Make your own Halloween sign this year instead of buying from the store. You just need some orange and white beads, and a lot of black beads. Substitute other colors if you run out of any color beads.
This Perler bead portrait of a skeleton tree outlined in the moonlight truly sets the mood. The combination of black, white, and purple beads truly gives off Halloween vibes. If you want to make this work even better, use glow-in-the-dark beads for the moon.
Pairs of Eyeballs
Leave some Perler bead eyeballs in random places. Your children will find it funny to find them, say, in the refrigerator or in between a book they are reading.
Cute Halloween Things
While a lot of Halloween designs are gloomy and scary, these characters manage to still look adorable. The lively colors make these designs fun instead of out-and-out spooky. I spy candlesticks, a cauldron, a ghost, and a Jack-o’-lantern. Which one is your favorite?
Jack-O’-Lantern Candy Bucket
Collecting treats is one of the most fun things about Halloween. Just look at this bucket filled to the brim with Halloween treats and candy. If you want to make this design, make sure you have many orange beads on hand as it will be hard to substitute other colors for it.
These bats flying across the moon would make a great wall hanging for this occasion.
If your young ones ask to make this skeleton, you’ll have to help them with the joints. You’ll need some thread and a needle to put the bones together. Once finished, it’ll be a cute skeleton hanging with movable joints.
Stack of Pumpkins
The shading on this stack of pumpkins is really amazing. The use of bright yellow and two shades of orange makes the pumpkins look like they are really lit from the inside. The purple wizard hat is the perfect touch, too.
Have you heard of sugar skulls before? Also called Calavera, they used to be a common gift for children and decoration for the Day of the Dead. Sugar skulls are made of hard sugar and come in intricate and colorful designs just like this one.
Realistic Jack O Lantern
If you’re searching for more realistic and detailed Halloween designs, then this scary Jack-o-lantern might be what you’re looking for. It looks like it’s come straight out of a horror movie. If you plan on making this design, click on the image to take you to the Pinterest page. Click on “View Image” to see the bead pattern better.

This is such an awesome Halloween house. It’s by the official Perler bead site so there’s a very comprehensive pdf tutorial available for it. If you can recreate this piece, you’ll surely get compliments from all your visitors.
See your favorite characters dressed up in their spooky holiday gear!
Take a look at this zombie Perler of this extremely iconic Pokémon. Yellow fur gives way to sickly green flesh and rotting brains, but Pikachu still manages to be as adorable as ever!
Here’s another design of our cute yellow electric rodent, and this time, he’s dressed up as a witch complete with a purple witch hat and magical broom. Look how ready Pikachu is to head out and snag some trick-or-treat candy.
This Pumpkin Bulbasaur design is extremely creative as the seed on his back has been replaced with a giant jack-o-lantern!

If you’re looking for some simpler designs, perhaps these ornaments are just what you’re looking for. There are a variety of Halloween-themed mushrooms on display here.
The Powerpuff Girls are ready for Halloween! Take a look at Blossom in her charming witch costume. We love the scarlet cape on her as well.
Bubbles’ she-devil costume is a great contrast with her very sweet and kind personality. Little do people know that Bubbles turns very scary when you somehow get her angry, and this Perler bead design perfectly captures that.
Beetlejuice Lydia Buttercup
Lastly, take a look at Buttercup of the Deetz household as she dresses up as Lydia from Beetlejuice in this cool Perler bead design. Doesn’t this hair-do fit her so well?

Elevate your Halloween spirit with a whimsical Casper Perler bead design wearing a grinning pumpkin. This fusion of this classic ghost and jack-o’-lantern is the perfect blend of spookiness.
Winnie the Witch
Even Winnie-the-Pooh is ready to get that candy haul this Halloween. Look how much he’s candy he’s gotten already in this large Perler of him.
Pooh as a bumblebee is actually pretty perfect given his naturally yellow fur color and round body. He’s just so adorable. Just like before, he’s gotten a pretty big haul with this costume as well! If you’re going to do this project, make sure you have a lot of orange and black beads.
Dracula Hello Kitty
This Dracula Hello Kitty Perler may seem simple, but that doesn’t change how cute and frightening it is. Just look at her adorable red bows and menacing coat!

If you want something a little more on the scary side, this Zombie Hello Kittle design is just what you’re looking for. Even the most seasoned of horror enthusiasts will be creeped out by this one with her dead eyes and bloodstained dress.

We absolutely love this Witch Hello Kitty. The pastel colors complement each other very well, and the design evokes a sense of her flying in the night over a starlit city.
Hello Kitty Pumpkin
This design is simply Hello Kitty in a creepy pumpkin. Adorable!
Animal Crossing Jack
If you play Animal Crossing, then you might know Jack. Jack is the host of Halloween in the game and he gives away unique spooky furniture. If you don’t give him candy, Jack will play tricks on you.

I hope you have fun crafting with your melty beads this Halloween. And, we provide our patterns to help give you inspiration to come up with your own designs, in addition to following our templates. The beauty of fuse beads, and why we love creating with them, is how completely open-ended they are. The more you use them, the easier it is to dream up new designs!
