Earlier this year, I made a Zombie Apocalypse Countdown Calendar for my daughter Tracy.  I have two daughters, and couldn't justify making something awesome for one and not the other.  Claire is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I knew that would be the theme of hers.  Here's what I came up with... the drawers have images of some of her favorite elements of the series and the center section has some festive holiday decorations.  That's an image of the Hogwarts Great Hall decorated for Christmas, along with a snitch in the upper left hand corner.



Harry's emerging from a fireplace holding a jar of floo powder.  I received the tiny fireplace from Loves2Experiment in an IYP swap, this was the perfect place to use it!  I used 3 kinds of green glitter paint to decorate it.  It glows really nicely in person, the camera doesn't capture it very well.  Harry's came with the little potions table in a Lego minifig kit I found at Target.


Here's a close-up of a few drawers.



Ron is her favorite character and Goblet of Fire is her favorite book.



But wait.. there's more.   Smiley  I'm going to have her open this black potions cabinet on the first day as well.


Inside each drawer is something to add to the potions cabinet every day, along with a description of what each item is.  There will also be a piece of candy or other small treat in each drawer.


Here's another example.  The tiny jar contains honey from our bees.


And here's the cabinet completely loaded!  I'm pretty sure both of my girls will be thrilled with what Mom made them.   Grin

It should work to use the same brine recipe and ingredients.  I just suggest you look up a refrigerator pickle recipe to see how the pickling process differs.  I may try that myself.  Good luck!
