Hello my lovelies,
I’m back today to show you what I’ve been up to the past couple of weeks.
I made a niffler! He looks a bit like a pot bellied duck but I could only find a pattern. Zero instructions. It was an extremely frustrating week. But he’s finished and my daughter loves him.
We’re calling him Ned.
Ned the Niffler.
And as you can see, he’s ready trying to nick my belcher chain.
Yesterday, Missy and I spent some quality time making these potion bottles to hang on the tree. Thankfully, we didn’t need to use a glue gun for this. Did I mention that my glue gun blew up. In my hand. Bang! Smoke! Me: *freak out*
Glue gun: 1
We used super glue to glue the corks in instead of hot glue.
Please excuse the dust on our wood burner! Super embarrassing!
Besides the potion bottles that I got from The Works for £1, I had everything else for this craft project at home.
I bought the labels from an Etsy shop a couple of years ago when I participated in a Harry Potter craft shop. I’d say all in this project only cost me about £2.50
Winner, winner chicken dinner!
I’m still in the process of making the gillyweed label which didn’t come with the set from the etsy shop. Once that’s done, I’ll have a little set of 6 potions or ingredients for our potter tree.
Next up, a Dobby figurine made out of felt. He’s probably going to be as good as the niffler!
