The summer and it’s irresistible colors have inspired this DIY beaded woven bracelet, ideal for the pool or the beach. As a good Scandinavian I can’t miss a Hama bead tutorial on my blog. You will see how easy it is to make a woven beaded bracelet and you can use this technique for many other projects.
If you don’t know Hama beads, they are small tube plastic beads in many colors that you can model on a board to make thousands of designs and melt them with the help of the iron to create forms and figures. It’s actually a product for children, but many adults use them for their creative projects.
