Harry Potter Swap on Craftster Part II

These last months has been filled with Harry Pottericus Totalus and it all started with me entering the Harry Potter Craft Swap on Craftster. I've already shown you what I received from my Swap partner and just a bit ago I posted this making of the Weasles Family Clock which I made for my Swap Partner. And here's the rest of the package:

For my medium item I decided to make a potion test tube holder. I used the same kind of wood as for the Weasley Clock and the hardware store staff was nice enough to cut it in shape again (they don't usually cut it this small, but I had to wait a while for service, so custom cut for meeee). I had 4 pieces cut, 2 long ones and 2 shorter ones almost as tall as the test tubes. I put the 2 long pieces on top of each other and drilled 6 holes big enough to fit the test tubes all the way through the first piece and partly through the second one. This way the test tubes have a little base to rest in on the bottom.

I nailed all four pieces together to shape a rectangle and dyed the wood again with the wood stain to make it look older. Halfway during the dying I decided to woodburn a secret signature and image from Charlie Weasley onto the bottom of the test tube holder. I wonder if my Swap Partner has found it yet!

Charlie Weasley is my Partners favorite character from the HP universe and as there is barely any information on him in the books and movies I just made this his property.

My small item is this pillow case that I made at the Marabu Fashion Spray Workshop at the Dawanda Snuggery a while ago. I used the yellow and black colours as my Partner is in the House of Hufflepuff. It's really cool how the colours mix in with each other, you can see it a bit better in the video at the bottom of this post.

The only thing I had to do at home was to seal the colour by ironing it for a couple of minutes and then it's good to go.

So here are the finished items I shipped out to my Partner in Belgium:

The infamous Weasley Family Clock (Making of can be found here)


A selection of Potions in test tubes (I found the potion labels here) in Charlie Weasleys test tube holder. I filled the test tubes with various items from our household explained by the parchment.

And a Deathly Hallows Hufflepuff pillow case.

The Tri-Wizard Swap Package!

If you want to see something awkward you can check out the video I made saying out loud what I just wrote above.
