Minecraft. I cannot begin to tell you how much I know about Minecraft! And it is probably just the tip of the iceberg compared to what my son knows about all things Minecraft.
I am a fan of Minecraft for many reasons and will likely write about that another day. For today’s activities for boys article, my son made this awesome Creeper perler bead craft.
I think he did a great job and I am happy to share his project with you today.
Use our Minecraft Creeper Perler Bead Pattern below and your kids can make one themselves.

Perler Bead Pattern: Minecraft Creeper
We are doing a whole series on Minecraft Perler Bead Patterns so be sure to stop back to see the other ones.
Perler Bead Creeper Supplies:
To make the Creeper I will give you some basic directions and dimensions. You can use the image for reference.
- The Creeper is 5 beads wide and 13 beads tall
- His body is 3 beads wide
- My son made him in all green and then replaced the plain green with other shades of green to make the textured (mottled) look.
- He used the standard colors that came with the mixed color pack (see below.) Black, Green, Dark Green, Kiwi Lime, Pastel Green and Black
Google how to best work with Perler Beads if you need some tips. Ironing was the hardest thing about it for me. My son likes the pixal art look so he didn’t want them fully melted.
I had the best luck with keeping the iron moving and not pressing down much at all.
These projects are full of creativity. You can make about anything you can image. Make our Creeper or change the design a bit to make him all your own.
