Did you ever used to play with Hama beads when you were younger? Well I did. And I have a confession to make. I still use them now! They make such pretty shapes.. and I use them for coasters.

Here are a few of mine..

You get a really nice texture on both sides so you can flip them over for variety. Below is a picture of the underside (the side that isn't heated with an iron)

  1. My boys and I love to makes these, we have a whole bottle of them and it will probably take years to use up all the plastic beads. Yours look really cute! They are perfect as coasters!


  2. I used to make things of Hama-beads too, and would love to try out again someday :) Those coasters would be really great gift idea! :) We have coasters at our home but never use them hehe.

    Indie by heart

  3. I have never seen those little beads before, but I love your coasters! Very creative :)

  4. That was one of my favourite games with my cousin.The stars and heart are fabulous!Lovely post :)

  5. I used to adore these! I'm going to have to find mine (probably somewhere in the attic) because those coasters are just so gorgeous! x
