Craft Idea – make some Christmas Tree decorations with Hama beads

There are lots of ideas for hama bead creations at this Pinterest page. You can follow patterns or just make up colour combinations. We made stars and hearts and then threaded some cotton through the top bead and hung on the Christmas tree. This is a good activity for children who are 7 years plus – adults need to be in charge of ironing the beads. To do that you need to place greeseproof paper over the beads and then iron till the beads are fused together. If you buy a hama bead kit the waxed/greeseproof paper will come with it and can be reused.
