With this tutorial, you will get the Hama bead pattern for a simple Santa Claus that can be designed with Hama beads (also known as Perler or melting beads), ironed, and hung on the Christmas tree. This DIY ornament will probably bring you back to when you were a kid, creating Perler bead patterns on your own peg board. This Santa craft is a fun activity that can be done by one child or a group, and parents will enjoy playing, too.

I love this idea! My daughter loves crafts like this, so I will have to see about making this ornament with her. What a cute idea!

I have only recently discovered melting beads, and now I am always looking for cute and fun patterns to make ornaments or window hangings with. This pattern is easy and fun, and my kids loved the end result. You have to be careful, of course because an iron is being used, but it really is an easy activity to do with the kids.
