Submarine Perler Bead Pattern

Today we have a submarine perler bead pattern for you. It was an interesting one to create. I looked at a lot of submarine pictures and came up with our design.

It is not a specific or historical submarine but I think kids who like subs will enjoy making it.

Submarine day is in March 17th so it seemed fitting to make our next perler bead pattern a sub.

Easy submarine perler bead pattern that is great for Submarine Day - or any day!

Submarine Perler Bead Pattern

This project took a lot of gray as you see.  I dug into my crazy supply of beads but also bought a couple of different gray single packs as well.

Submarine Perler Bead Pattern

  • The submarine is 14 beads high including the periscope, 23 wide at including the propeller.
  • Use the image to see where to taper the sub.
  • You can use 4 blue beads to make port holes.
  • I included some dark grey beads within the body of the sub.
  • The bridge is 6 wide then 4 wide.
  • The periscope is 3 high not including the bridge and is 1 wide, then 2 rows of 2 wide.
  • There is a row that is 5 wide at the bottom of the sub.

This Perler Bead submarine is fun to make for Submarine Day (see this site for a bit of interesting info on the day) or any day! I also like to use this type of project to tie into a unit study on submarines or a history unit.
