STOP! Hama (bead) Time! We didn’t realise how much we heart Hama/Picture beads until Hobbycraft asked us to come up with a kids project using them. As our kids love dressing up in regal attire, we came up with an everyday mini crown that Queens (and Kings) can pop down the shops in! As with everything we do, it’s fun and simple to make. Be warned… you’ll be making loads of them to match on their royal outfits! Visit the Hobbycraft blog for our tutorial on how to make them.
