I’ve been on a craft supply organizing trip lately, and this next project is giving me Harry-Potter-Crafty-Organization-Envy (don’t laugh, it’s a serious condition).
Woozelmom created this needle craft supply storage trunk with a pretty specific concept in mind:
In my head I started getting an idea that what if Molly Weasley (my hero) went to straighten up the twins bedroom after they had left for fame and fortune in Diagon Alley with their own shop and she found a trunk the boys had left behind with some of their odds and ends. Being the thrifty woman that she is she decided to repurpose things for her hobby of knitting and by doing so, still allowing her to feel close to her fledgling sons. With that thought in mind I started planing my trunk.
The finished product is so expertly executed that I can easily picture it tucked away somewhere special in The Burrow, just waiting for Mrs. Weasley to get a spare second to sneak in a few stitches.
All of that fictional product packaging is making me swoon, and each package contains a different craft supply. Woozelmom has the details of her trunk broken up into a few posts. Click the links to find out what each package conceals: Continue reading
Okay, so you may not be able to actually turn time with this DIY time turner necklace, but you’ll probably turn a few heads.
Deviantart user FromWinterToSpring provides a tutorial for creating this lovely time turner out of a few keyrings and some beads.
Instructables user bookcrazzy created four sets of these amazing trunks and Hogwarts school books as Christmas presents.
What Potter fan wouldn’t be absolutely thrilled to receive this lot as a gift? The trunk is covered in leather, and the books include: The Monster Book of Monsters, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, A Study of Recent Developments in Wizardry, Advanced Potion Making, Magical Theory, A History of Magic, The Standard Book of Spells, The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection, Quidditch Through The Ages, One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi and Charm Your Own Cheese. But these books aren’t just pretty to look at, they’re actually full of Potter-relevant content. For more images and additional details about how this incredible gift was created, check out bookcrazzy’s instrucables post.
Over on instructables there’s a tutorial for turning discarded “ruined” encyclopedias into Hogwarts style library books. Talk about turning trash to treasure!
