21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hedwig-ish Harry Potter Mail Owl! on: June 01, 2014 05:21:35 PM
I think that this is the greatest 5 minute craft in the history of the world! I saw a plastic owl at the dollar and I KNEW it was really a mail owl. A quick coat of white paint, a print out Harry's Hogwarts letter and BAM! in 5 minutes you've got yourself a mail owl!

I know he's not EXACTLY like Hedwig, but I think for the $2 and 5 minutes this took he's a pretty close relative Smiley

Here's what he looked like before...

Thanks everyone for the nice words. It was great fun to create and I hope it helps draw people out to the tour and raise some moolah!

This is crazy beautiful! Wonderful job!!!! How did you make the little books? And what is their approximate size?

Thanks! My wee books are made by elves in the middle of the night. Not entirely sure how they do it. All I know is that it requires making a huge flipping mess. Wink Most of them measure somewhere between .3" x .75" and .5" x 1"

Ah man, this is too good. Is it glass in the windows? I just love it so muchy, wow wow wow wow wow.

The windows are made from sheets of transparency, like those used for overhead projectors.

When I was asked if I'd like to participate in a local fundraiser this year by getting my fairy on I gave an enthusiastic YES! Inspired by the Urban Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor, Horizons.ca is adding fairy stops on their Annual Home and Garden Tour. I've created a little bookshop for book loving fairies (which really means all of them, because all fairies love books, even goblins) which will be displayed inside a local independent book shop.

The piece measures around 11" x 8.5"... the size of a regular sheet of paper. The base is a book shaped box that someone just happened to give to me recently. Timing is everything!

The shop window with "Godefroy's New, Used & Rare Books ~Specializing in fairy tales~"

A peek through the window...

The tiny sign can be turned to say "Open".

I made over 470 of those little books, about half made it into the shop. They all open. I had planned to leave them loose so that they could be moved around... but realized that was probably unrealistic and they'd get knocked around and fall over.

I've created the space so that wee faux tealights can be easily placed inside to flicker in the windows.

Inside there are portraits of a few of the authors that I love dearly: JK Rowling, Roald Dahl, Margaret Atwood, Hans Christian Andersen, Edward Gorey, Lewis Carroll, Maurice Sendak, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Munsch and Beatrix Potter can all be found inside.

And that's it!
