I had planned to spend last Friday rereading the Half Blood Prince to get ready for the Deathly Hallows...but I was so full of anticipation and excited energy that I had a mini Harry Potter craft-a-thon...all by myself.

I made the famous Luna radish earrings out of Fimo (soft). I want to make a smaller pair as well..these are a little heavy.



I wanted to wear something festive without dressing up so I made myself a Harry Potterpuff scarf. The facial features are all felt and his classes are waxed cording. Had I more time, I would have sewed it together...rather than glued.



My little brother invited me to join him at Barnes and Noble...and he was dressing up ...so I made him a Gryffindor Badge (all felt) He did the lettering himself with a fabric pen since I ran out of time.



I also made him a wand...the original was lost when was paying for his book...so this is a replica...



My brother won second place in the adult costume contest and got to be one of the very first people to purchase the book at midnight, which was super exciting!

cute earrings. if you are concerned about the weight, try balling up a piece of aluminum foil and then surrounding it with the poly clay, it will still fill it out but with less weight AND clay! Smiley

That's a good idea. I generally wear very light earrings or studs...I think I may try to make a tiny pair and glue studs on the back...

The foil is an excellent suggestion.. Thank you.

If you don't want to just make the radishes smaller, you could also make them lighter-weight by making them "hollow-backed."

In other words, use an armature or form to create them over so you'll have the dimensionality (at least the front half of a radish), but then remove the form and bake the radish (with a bit of tissue or something else oven-safe underneath it, if needed), or just bake it on top of the form if the form is oven safe (perhaps a wood bead, or tightly scrunched aluminum foil shape, etc.).

Nice radish!  Maybe you could use these as charms for a backpack or zipper, or even use one as a pendant.

Diane: Thank you for the suggestions. I wore them around town a bit this week and got some good responses...and I don't think the people realized they were Harry Potter related. I may have to go make a lighter pair in the large size.

Dazy: Thank you. I used the tutorial on instructables.com and dandcando.com It is really easy and the results are amazing.
