Project Name: hinkypunk lantern
Brief Description:while out on the school grounds the other day i happened to see a Hinkypunk along the edge to the black forrest. i watched for several minutes as it darted around the trees and then disappeared into the woods. I desided that I wanted to make a glowing lantern but was having a hard time finding a glass globe that I liked...until i happened on a storage room while hiding from some rather bad tempered 7th year Slytherins who had the audacity to accuse me of stealing their Potions essays and using them to line the floor of the owlery... All I'll say on the subject is at least the owls seemed to appreciate it.
Anywhoo i saw a globe from an old wall fixture that the mate had broke so I carried it back to the dorm and made a lantern like beaded wire cage around it and modge podged some squares of text from an old book along the lines of the base. I love how it turned out!
i wish i could get a better close up of the beads
here it is lit up
