Arrrrhh! Pirate Frame

★★★★★ ★★★★★

What a fearsome thing this pirate be! Arrrrhh! And what fun to create this Pirate Frame from Perler beads! You can even make it into a mask for Halloween with the addition of ties. 

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Black - 230
  • Yellow - 57
  • Glow in the Dark Green - 51
  • Fire Stripe - 47
  • Rust - 196

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Photo
  • Tape
  • Magnetic tape - optional
  • Black shoelaces - optional
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Arrrrhh! Pirate Frame Project Pattern. You will use a super-size pegboard to create your project. Slide the actual-size pattern underneath the pegboard, then place your beads on the pegboard as shown.

Step: 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.

Step: 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.

Step: 5

ASSEMBLY: Trim the photo to fit within the opening of the pirate’s face. Tape in place from the back. Set the finished frame on an easel to display it.

Step: 6

If you have an existing photo in a metal frame, you can attach the pirate face to the frame with magnetic tape, or display it on a fridge in the same manner.

Step: 7

If you wish to use the pirate head as a mask, add shoelace ties between the beads on each side.
