This cat perler bead love pun card is simple to make with pearler beads and thoughtfully placed on a card you can gift to family or friends!
Perler beads are my favorite family activity. When you have multiple children in a range of ages, they are something that can entertain and yet still keep them learning at the same time.
For me, it’s something that brings together my oldest down to my youngest in a fun, family focused activity that’s great for our brain.
My kids have been helping me create lots of fun perler bead designs – and most recently, puns. I love love love puns and what better what to celebrate the month of February than with love puns?!
They started with these cute OWL perler bead designs – combined with a card. Then, we moved on to a lightbulb – so we could say “I Love You Watts and Watts!” We then moved onto a pineapple pun and now… a cat pun!
Cat Perler Bead
This Cat Perler Bead combines 5 colors and brings them together to create an adorable cat that serves as a love “pun”.

First, gather your beads and count out each color required:
- Dark Brown: 30
- Light Brown: 4
- Peach: 2
- Dark Green: 4
- White: 58
Get started by laying out all of your materials on a flat surface. I like to lay a clean terry towel down to prevent the beads from rolling around the table (and onto the floor!)
You’ll start the layout with bottom of the cat, and then slowly work your way to the stem. When the cat is complete, get ready to iron your creation.
Lay your wax paper atop and gently press with a warm iron for 30-35 seconds. Avoid over-pressing because the beads will melt a little too much.
I’ve got Felines for you Card
In addition to those items you’ll also want to have:
Once you print the card, cut the paper in half with a paper cutter, and affix your cat on top with a single adhesive dot.
That’s it! If you are sending to family or friends, place the cat on the card with a single adhesive dot. Then place in a 5×7 adhesive sleeve. Tuck in a 5×7 envelope and mail with a single forever stamp.
