14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Ornaments for a Harry Potter Holiday! on: November 29, 2017 04:21:09 PM
I've been doing a lot of Harry Potter crafting this year. Not intentionally, but with the unusual levels of stress I've been dealing with, I guess I go to what is most comforting. In any case, I made a slew of ornaments for the upcoming holidays Smiley

I love the idea of a lighter side to dementors...they've got to do something when they're not on duty being all creepy, right?



This was inspired by Hermione's line to Ron regarding his emotional range of a teaspoon (too true). I attempted engraving on metal for the first time. It took a little bit of practice to get legible words, but I love how it came out. I added the bow and sprig of greenery because the spoon alone looked a bit plain.
 


I love this quote <3



This was inspired by Professor Trelawney - I feel like this could be found in her family holiday ornament heirlooms. The items in hand are a gazing ball, a teacup, rune stones, crystals, and tarot cards. I wanted to work in a palmistry hand but couldn't make it look nice enough to match the rest of the ornament.



Watch out for the nargles!



This is probably my favorite nonsense spell. With the most perfect pom poms I've had in my stash forever - it was meant to be  Smiley



I wanted to make some sort of port key ornament, but I wasn't sure how to show that since anything can be a port key really. I remembered seeing "emergency" glass frames that hold things like chocolate and money and thought that'd be a perfect framing device to hold my port key. Choosing the pig was just a random pull from my stash, but as a friend pointed out, I actually made a "por(t)k(ey)" haha. I love how that worked out.



Lastly, I made a butterbeer dangle. The beads used were supposed to evoke the bubbly amber tones associated with the tasty drink.



I'd love to hear what you think!  Smiley

I'm glad you like it MW! I was slightly worried it wouldn't read as "HP" enough, but I was too in love with the idea to do otherwise.

How do you come up with this amazing stuff SB? That's just fantastic!

Thanks CLM! I have an annoying habit of wanting to do things outside the box  Grin This definitely falls into that category I think. And I happened to have a windfall of little doll hands and eyes that prompted this creation.

Cute hoop lindy! A great holiday decoration that works for all year round too.

Here's my offering for the month:



Made for the HP ornament swap - I'm typically pretty lazy about doing much decorating to the back of my hoops but because this is an ornament I added a surprise sunflower. I used watercolor paints for the fabric, pompoms to decorate the edge, and the fake flower for the back.  Grin
