I just completed the Back to Hogwarts swap and what I made for my partner was all Christmas themed. I just want to share it all here cause I am super happy with how it came out and of myself for being able to keep within the swap parameters and with the Christmas theme. Oh and also spoil my partner while I was at it.
First up a sorting hat ornament that I carved and shaped out of polymer clay and then painted with acrylics.
History of Magic book made out of poly clay and painted with acrylics. I first laid out all the thin sheets of clay to make the pages and when I was done with that I backed it when everything was cooled I painted the pages and then I attached the cover and baked it. Then I painted the whole ornament
Sorcerers stone made out of poly clay and acrylic paint
All of these were made from shrinky dinks which made me quite happy to be able to do with a 2 year old how looked at them full of wonder =)
Flourish and Blotts themed ornament
Another History of Magic Ornament
A Harry Potter Cartoon my partner had pinned that I re drew and then cut out. I think it turned out pretty okay.
My partner has a muggle bracelet pinned which gave me this idea. I made the muggle plaque out of clay that I baked until it was still slightly bendy (yes technical term I know lol) then I glued it to a plastic ornament with E6000 glue and inside of the ornament I swirled around silver glitter glue to make it sparkly.
I made these ornaments for her children they are poly clay with the children's houses placed on them
These are house themed ornaments that I just painted with acrylics and then decoupaged vinyl letter stickers on.
I also made a Ravenclaw tree skirt which is just fabric and iron on transfers.
And the last project which happens to be my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E the Hedwig wreath. I used a floral form that I found in the dollar bin at Target it had a flat back which gave me the idea for the wreath. I used a marabu feather boa in white that I only glued to the front of the foam form then when that was dry I added in some loose brown feathers. The owl in the center is an owl charm I found at a craft store that you can take out the center and place beads on. I used two wood beads to fill in the space. I hung the charm from a piece of wire that I twisted until it was tight so that the charm would hang perfectly in the center of the wreath. I just stabbed the wire through the form with some glue on the tip. I used to remaining 5 or 6 inches of the twisted wire for the hanger and I placed it in the same way as the charm.
