Beautiful melted bead bracelets

Melted beads

We love crafting with beads, all kinds of beads. Today we’re using a bead new on the Swedish market, Hama beads with stripes! They are absolutely perfect to melt and make bracelets of. Check it out!

You need Hama beads with stripes and elastic cord. You also need access to an oven, baking paper and a baking tray.

Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking try, then place the beads on the tray. Leave a little space between the beads,  if they’re to close to each other they can fuse together. Put the plate in the oven for about 2-4 minutes. Keep an eye on the beads the whole time. The beads are done when they are flat. Look at them – they look like completely different beads.

As soon as the beads have cooled off is the time to make bracelets!

Done! We now have a whole bunch of new, stylish bracelet. They will be a great addition to the bracelet we’ve previously made and regularly use. Do you want to see our previous post on melt beads, you will find them here, here and here.Melted beads7

    SO HAPPY to see you on craft schooling Sunday! And the funny thing is that I’m about to make some little crafts from shampoo bottles, inspired by you, and had thought of making something with hama beads to glue onto them or to melt pony beads (in an oven outdoors) to make some little flowers to decorate the containers. Love this idea, just have to get some striped beads! They sure would make great handles for those little bottle bags, too! All the best, hope you’ll be back again soon!

Vackra armband av smälta pärlor

Melted beads

Igår pratade vi pärlor, alla typer av pärlor. Idag pysslar vi med pärlor – en härlig sorts pärlor. Nytt på marknaden är nämligen pärlplattepärlor med ränder! De är så fina och helt perfekta att smälta och göra armband av. Ni kanske redan har sett dem? Tydligen är de så populära att de för tillfället är slut hos leverantören. Men misströsta inte – de kommer tillbaka och då kan vin göra så här:

    Åh, vad fina! Och vilket roligt trick att smälta pärlorna så att de blir platta. Jag tycker de ser ut lite som gulliga livbojar. =)

      Visst är det söta! De ändrar helt karaktär när man smälter dem.
