    The arts and crafts thread

    I hope this isn't a duplicate thread.

    Anyways my wife is on a huge Harry Potter kick and we have our place decorated with Harry Potter stuff for Halloween. Anyways I surprised her with a set of wands from the Harry Potter series, all made by hand and painted by my untalented ass!

    My g/f is making things with fabric and yarn. Take a look at her Instagram, she has some cool handbags for sale on Etsy, suitable for holding arts and crafts supplies. Plus gratuitous photos of Panda!

    I went HAM and made 15 envelopes, dyed them with coffee and hand made little wax seals for them. We don't have a fireplace so a vent had to do. Here's the extent of our decorations for the time being.

    Turns out all you need to make wax seals is a carved potato for the emboss, hot wax and red acrylic paint. Then you just dip the printer paper in coffee, let them dry and then go to town!
