    They get really additive. Once you make one, start making loads. I'm gonna decorate my Christmas Tree with them

    We made some Mario bead stuff at home last night. I'll post up pics tomorrow. Very cool indeed and a great way to pass the time with the kids with the tv off

    As promised, here are a few examples of this weeks output. I'm going to make a few space invaders later to put around my monitor at work
    The strange thing is, Hama beads are terribly addictive. It's like doing a creative jigsaw puzzle, and is very good for relaxing the mind.

    You put them together on a peg board then you iron them. You put grease-proof paper over them and iron them with a (very) hot iron. They then melt together. It's all very clever stuff and very affordable. I believe they are also known as Perler beads in the US (whether it's a separate brand or not I don't know).
