Last week, while unpacking our boxes, we found a box of Hama Beads (Perler Beads in the U.S.) and the girls decided to spend an evening making shapes with them.
The next day I had a thought: wouldn't it be fun to make cupcake toppers out of beads ? With St Patrick's day round the corner, we decided to make a hat, a rainbow and a pot of gold. A quick search on google and we had found our designs. So we made 3 cute cupcake toppers and as a bonus we got to spend some crafting time together as a family.
Well the very next day, while reading my favourite blogs, I found 2 other projects using those beads... what a coincidence. Is this a new trend ???
Anyway, here is a quick how to. Can't be easier than this.
Hama Beads Cupcake Toppers
All you need to make a topper is a Hama Bead design, a skewer and a hot glue gun. Of course any design will work, so you can match your design to any party theme.
So, which one do you prefer ? My favourite is the rainbow !
