1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mischief Managed! Harry Potter cross stitch on: July 14, 2014 01:21:41 PM
Oh how I love me some Harry Potter! And I just got back into cross stitch after probably 20 years. I forgot how much I like it! Anywho, enjoy!

Hi! thanks for the feed back! I think the metallic black is a fantastic idea!

I cut them with just a pocket knife. Not even a great one, just a cheapy. They are a semi soft plastic (they give a little if you squeeze them) so cutting isn't too difficult. I just always position my hands, feet, and other body parts in a way that if I slipped or I made an accidental sudden movement I won't get cut. Safety first!

As far as drainage I haven't had a problem. In the small ones I put in succulents and honestly I pretty much neglect them. I chose them because they are really low maintenance and don't require much watering. Put in the plant, ignore. On;y a little water now and then. And I let the soil completey dry out before even considering adding more. And they thrive. Also, I don't fill the whole thing with dirt. just a little to surround the roots. The head and tail are hollow. Don't know if that makes a difference though.

The big guy I did a little different. I drilled a couple small holes on his underside, since he will be getting regular watering, filled his head, tail, and legs with rocks and again put just enough soil to surround the roots. Hope this helps!

I have been obsessively making these dinosaur planters because dinosaurs rock. Obviously. This guy is a bit different though. He's much larger, about 6 inches tall and a foot long. Also I scored this awesome Martha Stewart Texture paint for free at Home Depot. (They were giving it away because they were no longer selling it.) The guy gave me four colors but the terra cotta is my favorite. So, this guy is painted to look like a terra cotta dino pot and filled with some awesome golden moss. Now to decide where he should go in my house...




I made a few others in new colors as well. Yay for clearance at michael's! I got a ton of paints for 25 cents each!!





Hard to tell in the pic, but the red guy has a glittery sail!!

Anywho, I've been working on some bookmarks! A little something different from my usual crafts.  Grin

Basically, it's a 9 inch chain with various charms on the ends instead of a regular flat rectangle bookmark. Cheesy

Turquoise howlite, hematite heart and tiger iron zuni bear
glass hearts, swarovski crystal beads, and red glass bead
blue glass beads and leaves
turquoise howlite and a bison tooth

C&C welcome!
