I don’t talk about it a lot here, but I’m pretty much a book nerd. If you’ve heard of it, I’ve probably read it. I love discovering new authors and series as well as enjoying the classics. I think you will all agree that the Harry Potter series is definitely considered a classic, if not for the literature than the story. With that in mind, I couldn’t help but make a craft in celebration of his birthday! Since this is so far out from my normal, I wanted to make something that would be enjoyable even for you non-book junkies out there as well too.

To stamp the pendant I suggest practicing on a wood block so you get the spacing right. Then, when you’re ready, tape your pendant down and hammer away. You really only need 1 or 2 good hits. Be careful not to let it slip!

There are numerous ways to twist the pin with the beads, I just played around with it until I got something I liked. I found the easiest was to just fold it in half and tuck the rest into the bead. I know you can wrap the remainder around so that it’s more secure, but my needlenose weren’t fine enough.
