This is not geeky, but it’s crafty and super cute, so I’m sharing it with y’all anyway. I love little terrariums. Does anyone remember getting tiny little ones in capsules as cereal box prizes? (I’m really dating myself here, aren’t I?) Anyway, saw this Beararium Terrarium on Craftster that sugar cookie made out of a honey bear container. Instructions are on her blog. I might have to try this one.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is opening in just a few short days and I’ve been seeing a lot of cool shirts people are making to wear to the premiere. Craftster jilltheimpossible made this shirt – click through to see the back – Make Love Not Horcruxes. Now I’m regretting not re-reading the books beforehand.
I’d love to see more Harry Potter crafts!
“Nathan is a bit of an outcast amongst his spuddy pals. They’re not really worried that he’s going to eat their brains on account of the fact that A) he doesn’t have a mouth and B) they’re tubers, they don’t have brains. They don’t even mind his unusual skin tone, although there have been rumours that his ‘scar’ was drawn on with felt tipped pen. Nathan ignores their comments, he knows his moment in the spotlight will come. He’s just waiting for his big break – a starring role in “Dawn of the Vegetable Rack”.”
Yes, a zombie potato named Nathan. I love this. Kitty also makes mere mortal potatoes, in case you’re not into the current zombie craze.
We are currently all Harry Potter all the time in our house. In the past couple of months, we’ve watched all five movies so we’d be ready for #6, and my little guy and I have been reading the first book, a chapter a night. Now he’s watching Potter Puppet Pals on YouTube, probably completely inappropriate, but very funny. Funny and awesome craftiness. But he just asked me the question I always love and dread at the same time – can I make him a Harry Potter puppet? Love because he thinks I can make anything and dread because half the time it’s beyond my crafting abilities. Any other crafty moms have that problem?
Anyway, all this to say that I took a spin through Etsy to see if anyone else is making Harry Potter puppets right now and found these very sweet dolls, including Ron Weasley, by GirlCalledRic. I love the little Gryffindor necktie! More Potter characters, Star Trek and some super heroes in her Etsy shop.
