This is the standard design which came with the set, Harry helped out with a lot of this one. This board does use up quite a lot of beads!
Then I changed the colours a bit to make a pink version of the elephant:
More confident now, I created a Hama bead Elmer elephant which I'm rather proud of, using a picture from the book as a guide:
Fellow Hama bead enthusiast Kylie from Not Even a Bag of Sugar sent me a picture of her Hama bead Elmer which looks gorgeous in a frame!
Finally, I made Mrs Jumbo from Dumbo! I wanted to try Dumbo himself but I think that the board is the wrong shape for him, you'd need to make his ears bigger.
I now have a little parade of elephants across the top of our mantlepiece, and I keep thinking up new elephants that I want to make!
My Elephant pegboard was part of a Hama bead kit that we were sent by Craft Merrily. You can buy a pack of four pegboards at Craft Merrily which contains an elephant among other animals - Elephant, Giraffe, Lion and Camel Hama bead boards or you can buy a larger kit which contains these boards and others, along with lots of beads - Safari Hama beads giant gift box.
