I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of Rae Gun Ramblings Harry Potter Series. Every couple months the kids go on a Harry Potter spree and thankfully it is the one movie franchise I look forward to watching over and over again! I must shamefully admit that I haven't read the books but after doing a bit of research for this craft they are now on my Christmas wish list.
Luna Lovegood is possibly my favorite HP character and anytime I think of Harry Potter I can hear her say, "It keeps away the nargles." Because that little bit is always stuck in my head I figured I'd make something to keep away the nargles, butterbeer cork necklaces. (I'll save the dirigible fruit earrings for another time.)
I made two different necklaces; for the first you'll need: the following, a wine cork, a beaded necklace (I used one with a clasp already on it), eye pins, crimp tubes, and a B stamp. I'm using one from the PSA Essentials Romance Peel&Stick letter set.
The instructions for putting it together are on the images below.
It's plain to see the second necklace is much simpler. All you need is a cork, eye screw, B stamp, and a bit of string or ribbon. Screw the eye screw into the top of your cork, stamp it up with a B, and finally string the ribbon through the eye screw. Easy peasy.
I'm not sure Luna would actually were something so low key, I'm sure she'd want more corks dangling from the chain and probably a bell, but I know I will!
Don't go yet...there's more!!
