I made these ornaments for my partner in the Holiday HP swap.

I saw something similar to this but made with a clay scarf and a clay Hedwig inside. I thought it would be cool to do a crocheted version with a snitch inside. The jar is about 2 inches tall.


I also made a pygmy puff cage with mini pygmy puffs. I tried to make one using thin wire and soldering but after being burnt a few times and having a hard time getting the wires to stay I decided to pick up some thicker floral wire from the dollar store and used some thin purple wire from my stash and wire wrapped everything instead.


I love how they both turned out and plan on making some non-ornament ones for myself. Thanks for looking!  Grin

Very cute! Is the cage about the same height as the bottle? I like the wire-wrapped look! Nice work.

I just met you and this is crazy...I'll share my world, share yours maybe? And the loritab10 thing? It's just a pharmacist's joke.

Thanks!  Grin The cage was a little bigger somewhere around 2.5"-3" tall.
