Hama bead Christmas forest

I've been working very hard on my blog lately, and was starting to feel that I needed to make something for myself, even just a small craft. As Christmas approaches I love making little bits and pieces for extra decorations around the house, so last night I took the evening off and made a little Hama bead Christmas forest with some 3D trees that stand up on their own bases.

The trees are made on the large square pegboard using some lovely designs that I found online by Karen Benvenuti, sadly no longer available. The tree on the back left is made using some of the stripy Perler beads that I bought on holiday. I think it looks pretty cool! The Perler beads feel a little harder and more brittle somehow than the Hama beads when they are ironed, but they mixed in perfectly with my Hama branded beads and they ironed beautifully. I just need to try and keep the stripy beads away from the children or else they will all be used up and I don't know where I can buy them in this country!

I'm thinking about using the trees to create a little Hama bead Christmas display, perhaps making some more little cottages like my 3D Gingerbread House. I can see a little village surrounded by trees snuggled up on the mantlepiece with some fake snow!
