Minecraft Perler Bead Pattern: Skeleton

Time to make a Perler Bead Skeleton!

We are enjoying perler beads and making all sorts of things. Right now my son is into make Minecraft patterns for the blog.

Today we have a Minecraft Perler Bead Pattern Skeleton. The skeleton is a hostile mob (short for mobile) in Minecraft. It shoots players with a bow and arrow. Occasionally it might spawn with armor or an enchanted bow.

I think it turned out really neat.

I hope you enjoy this post which is part of a series of Perler bead pattern ideas including more Minecraft designs.

Minecraft Skeleton Perler Bead Pattern

To make a skeleton I will give you some basic directions and dimensions. Use the image for reference.

  • The skeleton is 15 beads high. It uses only white and black beads.
  • The head is 5 beads wide and 5 beads high. Use one bead for the neck.
  • The shoulder area is 5 beads wide.
  • The arms are 3 beads long and the legs are 5 beads long.

I wasn’t really sure how the arms would turn out since they were only just touching the body. Before ironing I edged things together with a toothpick a bit to make sure they would stay together.  I also started melting in those arm areas first and it all seemed to work fine.

I suppose they would break off if one were rough with them, but they have held up for us so far. (update – still just fine!)

I can’t get over just how creative one can be when working with Perler beads.  We are really liking them as a new art medium. You can make anything!

They are really great for learning too. You can help your kids to follow a pattern like this one, draw their own creation and try to make it out of Perler Beads, take a picture and see if they can recreate it in Perler, use them free-form and so on.

I hope you enjoy my son’s Perler Bead Minecraft Skeleton Pattern.

Oh my goodness, these would be great fun to have when we take a break from being out in the sun this summer. Thanks for the link to the perler beads, they're really hard to find in our area unless you want girlie colours, which my boys don't like. lol
