Minecraft crafts using Hama beads

Minecraft crafts using Hama or Perler beads

My children love Minecraft and they love Hama beads - and Hama beads are the perfect craft material for reproducing the blocky feel of Minecraft! So I'm sharing some brilliant Minecraft crafts made using Hama beads. Of course you can also use Perler beads or any other type of melty bead to make these designs.

We made these Minecraft Hama bead keyrings to go in party bags for my son's Minecraft party a few years ago, and they were a big hit! You can find some designs similar to the ones that we used here - Minecraft designs for Hama beads - and they can also be adapted for all sorts of crafts. For example we used similar designs to make square magnets to sell at a car boot sale.

You can also find some different Minecraft keychain designs in the video below, these keyrings are all different types of weapon. To make similar keyrings you can find a free pattern from Red Ted Art here - Hama bead Minecraft sword pattern.

I love this Minecraft sign using Hama beads which makes a great room decoration. You could also adapt the letters to spell out your child's name as a sign for their door.

I used the small Easter egg board to make these Minecraft Christmas baubles with Hama beads which I have also re-purposed at Easter for our Easter tree. They are based on the square designs above and are really simple to make up.

These 3D Minecraft figures are amazing! Even though they look complicated, all you need is a square board to make the pieces which are slotted together, and the finished figures have moveable arms too. You could also have a go at a 3D Hama bead Ocelot to keep them company.

Finally, here you can see pretty much every item from Minecraft, replicated in Hama beads. Many of these would make great magnets or keyrings, or card toppers, embellishments, jewellery - so many ways that you could display them!

Happy Minecraft crafting!
