Large Diwali Hama Bead Rangoli designs


In 2017 Diwali will be celebrated on the 19th October.

The other day I blogged about some small Hama bead Rangoli designs that I had created as a Diwali craft for the children. I'm afraid that my growing Hama bead obsession wouldn't let me leave it there, and so I have also made some bigger Hama bead Rangoli patterns, using the larger circular template (221). These are a lot more complex and so are probably better suited to older children or adults who have more dexterity and patience. I found it easiest to assemble them by working from the centre outwards.

As well as being pretty Diwali decorations they would also look good on a Diwali table, either as a centrepiece or as coasters for drinks or plates of food.

These larger Hama bead designs can take quite a while to make, and you need to be a bit more careful when ironing to make sure that all the beads have melted properly. After taking the photographs I ironed them on the top side too, to make them a bit sturdier. I stuck to the same colours for them both, but it would be easy enough to use different colours, keeping to a bright and cheerful colour scheme. I'm really pleased with them!
