Hello everybody, it's monday again! I just had foot surgery, so Ill be a regular visitor here for the next few days. I have some awsome new crafts for you guys today! The theme is all about hp jewelry, so without further ado, lets begin!

House Pride Necklace

Supplies

-jewelry wire

-some beads in your house color(or colors)

Directions

  1. Draw out what you want your necklace to look like. Make fun shapes or swirls or sympbols, whatever you want. Be sure to put where you want the beads to go.
  2. Shape the wire into the shape of your pendant.
  3. Add the beads. String them on the wire and put them where you want them to go.
  4. Now you have two options. You can hot glue the beads in place or wire wrap them, which means you wrap the wire tightly around the wire around the bead and thread it through the bead then do the other side. 

Tiny Book 

Supplies

  • sheet of paper
  • cereal box
  • needle and thread
  • clear nail polish(optional)
  • printout of book cover(optional, could be harry potter book cover)

Directions

  1. Cut out a piece of the cereal box twice as big as you want the book to be. 
  2. Cut several pieces of paper the same size as the cardboard.
  3. Fold them all in half.
  4. Bind your pages together. Using your needle and thread, begin sewing the pages together along the fold. Try to keep the knots on the outside of the book.
  5. Glue it into the cover.
  6. Now you can do several things. I glued the first and last pages of my book to the insides of the cover, cut out a scrapbook paper bookmark and glued it into the book, glued the harry potter cover to the front and back, and painted it with clear sparkly nail polish. Another time, I painted the cover with gold nail polish and put it on a necklace, then I had all the kids in my class sign it. I then gave it to my teacher. 
  7. Its your choice. You can make jewelry with it, put it on a keychain, write in it, decorate the cover, the choice is yours.

RANDOM IDEA I JUST HAD-FILL YOUR BOOK WITH SPELLS AND WRITE THE NAME OF AN HP SPELLBOOK ON THE COVER!!!!!!
