Activity 115:   Hama Bead Coaster

Make your own bright and cheerful Hama Bead coaster!

You Will Need: 

  • Hama Beads

  • Hama Beads Pin Board

  • Baking Paper

  • Iron


Step by step guide:


Choose your Hama bead colours.


Choose your pattern. Make sure the pattern will fit the pin board.


Gradually work your way out (this way you do not accidentally get any beads caught in your sleeve etc).


Once done, gently place the baking paper over the bead coaster.


Start by working from the middle.

Then iron the beads together on a high temperature.

You will see the Hama beads ‘bleeding’ through the baking paper, that means they are melting together. Stop ironing then- if you continue to iron it might melt onto the pin board.


Once ironed immediately take out of the pin board, flatten and leave to dry.

Once fully dry (cold and hard), you can use it to put your cup of tea on 😊 .
