A quick alternative to the use of Hama pearls:
1. Take a biscuit cutter or an oven proofed bowl
2. Oil the form(s) well
3. Pour pearls in the forms
4. Melt them in the oven in 200C for 5 minutes
5. Let them cool down and remove the form.
As there is plenty of oil on the pearls, I consequently washed them with dish washing detergent in hot water to get the oil away, put a thread trough and made ornaments for a Christmas tree but apparently you can do bowls as well.
No, it didn’t smoke nor smell bad, the plastic pearls were such a short time in the oven. And no, can’t take credit for the idea, there are plenty of similar posts in the Internet which I found out when googling for some alternative ideas to do with the pearls.
I had to look up what Hama pearls were, but now I remember using them when I was a kid! Cute!
Just wait, if you introduce Zoe to the pearls they will be ALL OVER! Good for fine motorics though 😉
Oh my. I may wait awhile. Lucky for me They are way expensive here. 😉
Really?! Cool to hear something that is cheap here is expensive over there!
I thought they were cookies – I’m not safe to be let out really 🙂
haha, the colours look delicious, don’t they? 🙂
They really do!
Wow. I didn’t know you could do that with Hama pearls! My boy has been asking me to iron his hama pearls design and I have yet to do it. This seems easier… ? Or maybe not. Haha.
This is a quicker way to do something but the ironing part is easy too! I think I may have to try to make one of those bowls next!
Wow, please share when you have made them! 🙂
I will! It may be a while though 🙂
