{Craft} St Patrick's day Cupcake Toppers

Funny how things happen...

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.
Cut the skewer to the desired length and hot glue the design at the end. Let dry for a couple of minutes.

So, which one do you prefer ? My favourite is the rainbow !
