DIY Hama Bead Emoji Magnets
I adore Emoji’s, who doesn’t? They are the perfect way to say exactly what you want to say in a cute little smiley faced package. As you may have noticed in my DIY Emoji Wash Bag post, one of my favourite emoji’s is the heart eyes one so I wanted to create something with that sassy little face using Hama beads.
So here is my tutorial for DIY Emoji magnets because why not say all you want to say in emoji form on the fridge too? I’ve also made the cheeky face emoji, what a cutie! For the first time ever on theseglitteryhands.com you can buy (for only 40p) a downloadable template of this DIY to make it easier to work out where those pesky beads need to go.

You will need:
- Hama Beads
- Small Hexagon Peg board
- Small Magnet
- Glue Gun
- Wax Paper
Get out your Hama beads that haven’t seen the light of day since 1998, it’s time to bring those bad boys back.
Fill in your emoji with yellow Hama beads.
Cover your bead creation with wax paper (baking paper or tracing paper will do the trick too).
Carefully iron the wax paper (you might need a responsible adult for this!), keeping it moving at all times until all of the beads are stuck to the paper and have melted to each other.
Use your glue gun to glue a magnet to the back of your Hama bead emoji face.
Add it to your fridge with one of your fave photos, guaranteed to make everyone smile.
