Midweek DIY: 5 Hama/Perler Bead Bracelets

Today I thought I would share a few ideas for bracelet designs made using hama/perler beads. These beads are pretty versatile since they come in every colour and can be melted to create a different shaped bead. Plus, they tend to be reasonably priced and easy to get hold of so they're perfect for DIY-ing with.

If you would like to see a step-by-step photo tutorial on any of these bracelet designs let me know in the comments!

For the two bracelet designs shown above I attached the hama/perler beads together into a chain using jump rings.

For the other bracelet designs I melted the beads first in the oven to flatten them out into little circles (as shown below) - pop them into the oven on a lined baking tray at 200 degrees for around 5 minutes!

Thread them onto twine/elastic or attach them together using jump rings to create bracelets
