You know when relatives get Christmas presents that just get under your skin? Well, Hama beads were that present during this holiday season. Whether in my pockets, in my shoes, woven onto my laces, down my skinny jeans (don’t ask!) they were everywhere. The trick with this gift is that you make designs out of the beads and then iron them for a minute to get a solid design. When a young cousin made me a heart it all clicked- these Hama beads were a replica of the It-accessory of the moment as seen on Kanye West and Brandish. And they only cost £3.75 off Amazon and for that price who cares if the recommended customer age is 5?!

Check the pictures of some designs that I managed to snap over the holidays!

Try this at home: Spray-painted Vans

For his catwalk collection for Victorinox Pierre-Henri Mattout spent the morning spray-painting white Era Vans and they look HOT.
It’s not difficult to get the look, and it’s the perfect craft project for beginners. To try this out get your hands on some fabric spray paints and mask off the rubber sole with tape. You’re trying to get a shaded effect so try to spray from one angle and if you’ve chosen a couple of shades different colours spray each colour from separate angles. Make sure to spray very lightly and don’t be afraid to go over areas to get the desired effect.
