Drink coasters are one of the most made things with Hama Beads and there have been loads of searches on this site recently for autumnal version of them. So Maddy made some to share with you and I think you’ll agree she did an excellent job. All three of these are made with Midi Beads on a large circle board; she made a plain backing in the background colour with the outer ring for each one to make them stronger and thicker too.
Below are the patterns for making these coasters. You can right click and print all of them and they’ll shortly be available as an autumn download on our other website. The double thickness makes a real difference with these (bottom one is photographed double) and gives them an extra strength after ironing. It also means that both sides of the coaster can have the un-ironed look; use tacky glue to stick the ironed sides together. It works really well with hama beads.
Maddy had a good time creating alternative colour ways for these too. I’ve not produced them all as patterns but here is her three versions of acron coaster. What a very autumnal feel they have.
I think that is it for our autumn hama bead crafts on this site for now. We’ve got some 3D patterns to go up on BeadMerrily so do keep an eye out over there.
