I made these to go with some Harry Potter stationery for a HP swap with Hannah.
They were a quick and easy addition but kinda cool :D
Please note: the 20mins project time is from start to finish, including glue setting time and nail polish drying time. You could make a batch of these in an hour to use as party favours etc.
I'm also gonna try different coating techniques and would like to see if heat-embossing the swirl designs would work, I'll update this and let you know how it goes.....
Please let me know what you think and, if you are inspired to have a go, post your versions!!
Gather your ingredients!!!
Swirl hot glue around the top half of your pen or pencil.
Add a splodge to the end and attach your bead.
Set aside and allow to harden.
You can stand it up in a blob of blutack or in the hole of a threadreel.
Paint with 2 coats of black nailpolish and allow to dry.
Write your wizarding memoirs or scribble down your spell recipes in style.
