What´s up friends! if this post doesn´t put you into holiday mood you have only yourself to blame.
Tree and all the accessories can be purchased from my etsy-shop.
Scale is 1:12.
Wouldn´t you enjoy a cup of cocoa and some petting time with Crookshanks.
Who is going to get a crystal ball as a Christmas gift?
Tree is entirely made of pipe cleaners and many of the ornaments are pearls.
Books for Hermione.
Someone has visited Weasley´s Wizarding Wheezels.
Of course there must be a picture of the golden trio.
I wish you very magical holiday season!
What You´ll Need
1. Paint The Bottle
Cover the whole bottle with black acrylic paint and a sponge. You can add multiple layers of paint to ensure the surface of the bottle stays smooth.
2. Add The Bead
You can get more creative with the bead you choose, as it will act as your bottle stopper. The one I used is a broken Christmas light, and I thought it was perfect. Glue the bead to the top of the bottle with adhesive glue.
For the "always" quote, you can either write it yourself or print it online like I did. You can find many printables on Pinterest. Glue the label on the bottle.
4. Add The Final Touches
To give the bottle that magical touch, I melted some black beeswax to the top of the bottle. Don´t do this without parental supervision if you are a minor! When you melt the wax, protect your work surface because the process can get messy! You don´t need to use lots of the candle wax. Just drop a little bit on top of the bottle. Many times, letting it fall naturally will create most wonderful results.
Your Severus Snape bottle is ready! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and are inspired to try new things.
What You´ll Need
If you like dragons as much as I do, you are going to love making dragon eggs with this tutorial!
Place The Pins
Start placing the pins from the top of the egg and always cover a third of the previous pin in the next layer. Work all the way down to cover the entire egg. It took me about 90 pins to cover one.
Here are my two dragon eggs. At this point, they should look a bit like golden pinecones.
Paint the eggs
Pick a color you like and paint the entire egg.
I love using glitter in my craft projects. You can use basic crafting glitter or shimmering nail polish. I think it gives some extra magic to your dragon eggs. Be creative!
The dragon eggs are complete! I painted my eggs red, purple, and green. I hope you enjoy making your own!
Little video clipped I filmed while visiting Harry Potter world, in the Warner Brothers Studios in London.
It is a wonderful place. I highly recommend to visit if you are a fan of Harry Potter.
I was in Wales Comic Con in 2016. Wales Comic Con takes place at my university each year. Anyway I had these interviews in my old channel and now I am moving them all here. Brings back memories to me and maybe for you as well.
Here we have Colin Creevey, Percy Weasley and Madame Sprout. I always felt bit sad that Percy´s character wasn´t in other films. I liked the contrast he brought in the book series.
I remember being absolutely devastated when Alan Rickman passed away. He was not just Severus Snape for me but also captain Brandon from Sense and Sensibility and Sherif of Nottingham in Robin Hood. Wonderful actor and what I´v heard a generous loving person as well.
It was actually just few days after I had finished the painting I heard about his passing.
Watercolor and chalk.
I hope you enjoy the little time lapse video I made about the painting process.
Stickers, prints and other magical things available here.
As everyone knows I love Harry Potter and been a proud "potteristi" (that is Finnish equavelent for a potterhead) for 21 years. I was browsing my postcard collection and I found some lovely Harry Potter cards I used to collect.
This was a birthday card I got from my mom...I think I turned 14 or something.
Owls delivering messages to the great hall.
I like this one with all houses. Latin text of coure means "do not tickle the sleeping dragon".
I tried to find the name of the artist but sadly couldn´t find it. If you know who they are please let me know so I can give them proper credit. Probably because I´m an illustrator myself I always prefer illustrated artworks over movies (though hp movies are great as well).
Anyone fancy pumpkin juice? Oh..now I really want to re-read the first Harry Potter book (for the bazillion time).
Made as a gift for a friend.
Here is one of the bottles I made last summer. This one was inspired by Severus Snape from Harry Potter books. I sold the bottle in the Fairy Festival. What do you think?
