Minecraft is a super popular video game where players build 3D sculptures out of cubes. Its blocky, pixelated style means it’s perfect for recreating characters and objects in the real world using fuse beads!
Children who love to create their own designs in the game will love to use Hama Beads or Perler Beads to create their own Diamond Sword or characters such as Steve or Creeper!
With adult supervision for the ironing (or fiddly bits like attaching keychains), this craft is great way to expand children’s imaginations and improve their dexterity.
We take a look at some of the best Hama Beads Minecrafts patterns from talented bloggers, as well as a selection of our favourite products for creating them!
Laura’s Crafty Life shares 13 free printables for creating Minecraft Perler Beads designs, including keychains! Visit her blog to download the patterns and view a step-by-step guide. This tub of huge perler beads will give you a huge selection of beads to choose from and the keychain rings can be found in bulk on Amazon:
