The 35-year-old has signed until the end of the season and provides the forward cover that manager Tommy Wright craved having been forced to admit defeat in his pursuit of David Goodwillie.
St Johnstone become Coatbridge-born Iwelumo's 17th club but only his second in Scotland after St Mirren, where he began his career 18 years ago.
The former Wolves and Burnley forward, who left English League Two side Scunthorpe earlier this month, played four times for Scotland and is best remembered for his infamous fluffed chance in a goalless World Cup qualifier with Norway in 2008.
Meanwhile, the SFA have rescinded Steven Anderson's red card against Hearts, meaning he will be free to face Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership on Monday night.
The centre-back was sent off for a foul on Dale Carrick during Saturday's incident-packed 3-3 draw, which referee Brian Colvin deemed to have denied the Hearts forward an obvious goalscoring opportunity.
But the punishment has been downgraded to a yellow card for unsporting conduct for deliberately playing an opponent's legs.
Goalkeeper Alan Mannus and defender Tam Scobbie are suspended for the Tannadice game after both were hit with two-match bans for their part in the unseemly stramash in the aftermath of Hearts' second goal.
