My ten most popular Hama bead craft posts

My ten most popular Hama bead crafts

I've been writing about Hama beads for a long time on this blog. Recently I was sorting through some old posts and decided to have a look and see which ones were my most popular!

I discovered that I've written over 50 posts which are solely about Hama beads, and many many more where they get a mention. Interestingly, the most popular post of all isn't a Hama bead craft post. It's my post full of Ironing tips for Hama beads!

So here, all in one place, are my ten most popular Hama bead crafts.

10 - In tenth place are my Christmas ribbon and Hama bead bauble tree ornaments. These are simple to make and look really effective on the Christmas tree, especially when teamed with some festive ribbon.

9 - Hama bead heart frames. A great way to display a favourite photo, or to send as a Valentine's Day gift. You can add a magnet to the back so that it can be displayed on a fridge or other magnetic surface.

8 - Minecraft Hama bead keyrings. These were very popular when we used them as party bag gifts for my son's Minecraft themed party. We've also used the same designs to make fun magnets.

7 - Different Rangoli to make with children for Diwali. This post isn't solely about Hama beads, but it does contain a variety of different designs in different sizes so I thought that it was worthy of inclusion. We use these rangoli designs as coasters and food mats for Diwali.

6 - Mini Hama bead decorative plant markers. I love these little plant markers for cheering up plant pots around the home. Working with mini Hama beads lets you make some really intricate designs, it's a great craft for adults.

2 - A 3D Hama bead gingerbread house. My Hama bead gingerbread house always sits on the mantelpiece at Christmas, I keep meaning to get around to making a whole village of them! In my post you can see instructions for the different parts that you need to make and assemble.

1 - And in first place, we have the Mini Hama bead Easter Egg cake toppers! This was a really quick craft that I made one Easter when I had lots of mini Hama beads in different colours and was looking for a fun way to use them. They could also be used as embellishments for Easter cards or decorations.
