With the recent release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, our house has been really into the world of Super Mario. I don’t think a day has gone by that someone in the house hasn’t played it. It’s so much fun! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a great family video game.
Of course, all the Mario excitement has prompted us to make some new Mario Perler Bead projects. I thought I’d gather up some of our new and our old Super Mario Perler Bead patterns and share them with you.
One of the coolest things about Mario Perler Bead patterns is they are so insanely simple. Of course they are because Mario was originally a simple 8-bit character. Anything 8-bit goes perfectly with Perler Beads. Although you can find some complex Mario Perler Bead patterns, the ones I’m sharing with you are easy. Like, so easy you can finish some of them within 10 – 15 minutes.
The other fun thing about many of these patterns is that the same pattern can be done in multiple colors. Take Yoshi, for example, he comes in many colors. So you can make a Yoshi in any color that you have enough of in your stock.
8-bit Mario and Luigi Perler Bead Pattern
The first pattern I’m sharing with you is a 2 for the price of 1. This pattern can be made to create either Mario or his brother Luigi.
To turn the pattern into a Mario, make the hat and shirt red.
If you want it to be Luigi, make the hat and shirt green.
As you can see, we’ve done both.
One of my favorite things about this pattern is the fact that it looks exactly like the original old school Mario and Luigi. So retro!
Bomb from Mario Kart Perler Bead Pattern
One of my favorite items to get when playing Mario Kart it the bomb. I love driving around and “BOOM”; exploding someone in the game. Plus he’s really cute with his eyes and feet.
Of all the Mario Perler Bead patterns I’m sharing with you today, this one, is by far the easiest. It’s so small, that you could even do it with Biggie Beads if you have a tiny Mario Kart fan.
This small pattern would make a great fridge magnet, and might even be small enough to make earrings. Did I mention…it’s cute.
Yoshi Egg Perler Bead Pattern
Which comes first, the Yoshi or the egg? Well today the egg comes first, but I promise there will also be a Yoshi Perler Bead pattern.
I liked this pattern so much when I first saw it that I added a base to it. I wrote full instructions for making a Perler Bead Yoshi Egg with a stand a few months ago. Check it out.
The cool thing about this simple Yoshi Egg Perler Bead pattern is you can customize it to any color. The one I did is obviously the traditional green, but someday I want to make a whole army of Yoshi Eggs in all the colors of the rainbow.
Yoshi Perler Bead Patterns
You can’t have a Yoshi Egg, without a Yoshi. I’ll go even better, I’ve got two simple Yoshi Perler Bead patterns to share with you.
This first one is a simple 8-bit Yoshi. This is another pattern that would look great in a multitude of colors. Wonder Boy made this in a mint green. I’ve no clue if there is actually a mint green Yoshi out there in the Mario world, but he looks awesome.
The second pattern is just a Yoshi head. This particular Yoshi head holds a special place in my heart because Wonder Boy made it just for me. That’s why it’s pink. He knew I loved Yoshi, and he knew I loved Pink. He’s a sweet kid!
Anyway, this pattern is WAY over melted, but I think you should still be able to use it to create your own Yoshi head. Yours, of course, doesn’t have to be pink.
Luma Perler Bead Pattern
Although I don’t think that there are any Luma in Mario Kart 8, I still wanted to share this Luma Perler Bead pattern with you because they are so stinking cute. This Luma pattern is the most difficult of the ones I’ve shared today, but it’s still pretty easy.
Plus, Wonder Boy just finished Super Mario Galaxy for the first time, so I’ve seen quite a few Luma. Yep, I’m that mom who watches her kids play video games.
Anyway, Luma are a species of star like creatures that were first introduced to the Mario world in Super Mario Galaxy. If you aren’t completely familiar with them, they come in many colors.. The most common color for Luma is yellow like in the picture below, but you can have fun with your color choice. Lumas have been seen in blue, red, green, and purple. I don’t know if there has ever been a pink one, but I think that would be super kawaii too.
Super Mario Coin Perler Bead Pattern
You truly can’t have a collection of Mario Perler Bead patterns without throwing a coin into the mix. Seriously, the Mushroom Kingdom needs it’s currency! There are many Perler Bead patterns out there for Mario coins, but I think this one is one of the simplest. If you are looking for a Mario pattern to turn into a keychain, this pattern would be perfect.
Mario Mushroom Perler Bead Patterns
I think the mushroom has got to be the most iconic power up in the Mushroom Kingdom. It’s easy recognizable, that’s for sure. It’s most commonly found in games in both red or green, but you can really make these two simple patterns in any color you wish.
Goomba Perler Bead Pattern
I’ve always loved the little goombas. They are one of my favorite Mario enemies. I love the way they just lumber along getting in your way at every turn.
The Goomba Perler Bead pattern is really simple to make too.
Star Perler Bead Pattern
Various stars have played an integral role in the Mario world. Be it a power star, a invincibility star or a super star. You’ve gotta collect those stars when playing most of the Mario games.
Fire Flower and Ice Flower Perler Bead Patterns
Here are two flower patterns from the Super Mario world. The ice flower and the fire flower. It may be hard to tell at first glance, but the patterns are two different sizes. The ice flower Perler Bead pattern is a tad bit larger than the fire flower.
You can switch the colors on either pattern. If you want to make make them both the same size.
I hope you were able to find something in this list of easy Super Mario Perler Bead patterns that you want to create. I realize that many of these patterns were SUPER easy, which was my intent. I want a Mario fan of any age to be able to complete them. If you are looking for a more complex pattern, and don’t know where to turn check out my best places to find Perler Bead patterns.
