Quick and Easy Hama Bead Designs: Ice Lollies

by Jessica Amey

Cherry is really into Hama Beads at the moment, or Perler Beads / melty beads as they are also known.

She will happily sit there for ages making up designs, in fact I got back from the hairdressers at the weekend and I had ten different designs waiting to be ironed. The only downside to it is that Tiger likes to grab the pot and throw it on the floor meaning that we have beads everywhere until I clear them up, usually with the hoover 😉

The other day she called me over to look at what she had made and I had to share it here as it’s such a simple way of making sweet little ice-lollies.

She used one side of the heart shaped mat, like this…


Given that it’s summer I thought it would be nice to make lots of them so that’s what we did.




You could do so many things with them, we are going to buy some little magnets to glue on the back so we can stick them to our fridge.

You could also make bunting with them though, the possibilities are endless!

What are your favorite Hama Bead designs?
