Flowers Using Hama Beads - Step by Step Guide
Make the most beautiful flowers with Hama fuse beads for petals and pipe cleaners for stalks. These flowers are made on a pegboard with a mix of Hama fuse beads in a mix of bright colours. The flowers are attached onto pipe cleaners and are finished with glitter pom-poms. They are sure to brighten up any room and also make a beautiful gift!
Step by Step
Place the hama fuse beads on your pegboard in the shapes of flowers.
Make sure that your hama beads are next to each other so that they will fuse together.
You may make more than one flower on the pegboard at the same time.
Place a piece of ironing paper or baking paper on top of the beads and iron them together with an iron.
Do a small test beforehand as the temperature varies from one iron to another. Iron the beads so that they lightly melt together and then remove them carefully from the pegboard (still with the ironing paper or the baking paper on top).
Place a book or a heavy object on top until the beads have cooled down, then remove the ironing paper or baking paper.
Push one end of a pipe cleaner through the middle of the flower to form the stem of the flower.
Attach a pom-pom by pushing it onto the top of the pipe cleaner. You may add a blob of glue to secure the pom-pom.
Thread a fuse bead onto the pipe cleaner from below.
Push the end of the pipe cleaner up through the fuse bead, making a loop.
Twist the pipe cleaner around itself to make the stalk more rigid.
Shape another pipe cleaner into a leaf as shown in the photo and twist it around the stalk. Make several flowers and gather them into a bouquet.
