Next in the HP series: The Evil, The Awful… “You Know Who”….and his Horcruxes.
To make a Voldemort Ornament:
You will need one ornament, pencil, acrylic paint (dull white, black, grey).
Paint the ornament a dull white color. Add 2 layers and let dry. Use a pencil to add some slit like eyes, two lines for the nose and a downward tilting mouth. Draw a line at the base of the ornament to indicate his cloak (luckily he has no hair so you’ll have no worries painting that).
Highlight all the line with grey. Use the black paint and the back end of a paint brush to draw eyes. Make 2 small dots in the eyes with the white paint and let dry. Use black to paint the cloak at the bottom. Your evil Voldemort is all ready.
Harry was an accidental Horcrux created by Voldemort. Follow DIY Link here (Harry Potter DIY) to make.
Perhaps the easiest to make. Just buy a small black rubber snake from any craft store and paint dark gold and brown triangles all along the body. Add a few swipes of white along the body at random points. Place two dark gold dots to the eyes and… Voila. She’s ready.
You will need a print out of the Slytherin locket (front and back; Link: Slytherin Locket), Antique looking oval locket (available at any craft store), Podgeable Glass Domes (Link: ModPodge Domes), Mod Podge Matte, Scissors and Glue, Green Glitter Glue (optional).
- Cut out the front and back of the Slytherin locket and glue them together.
- Use an oval glass dome from the podgeable shapes and lay over the cutout. Glue the dome to the cutout using mod podge matte and let dry (hold the dome firmly over the image for a few second till the glue sets).
- Place the cutout into your antique locket (trim to fit). Make sure you find a locket slightly bigger than the dome shape… I’m still looking for a decently old looking locket to use. Perhaps a good hunt at an antique store might help 🙂
- Your Horcrux is ready. Put your own special blend of magic into it but remember…hide it somewhere safe and make sure R.A.B doesn’t find it.
- Optional Step: You can use the green glitter glue to highlight the green gemstones in the letter S of your printout before adding the glass dome.
Tom Riddle’s Diary:
You will need black leather trim (Link: Michael’s Leather Trim), Gold fabric fine tip pen, beige cardstock, Elmer’s glue and scissors.
- Prepare the diary’s cover and pages following the “Harry Potter Spell Books and Book Covers” (See link: HP Spell Books)
- Dampen your finger in water and gently rub over the pages to make them look worn.
- After preparing your diary and letting the glue dry, use the gold pen to fill in details (borders and “tom riddle’s diary”). Let dry for 45 mins.
- Use a push pin to make a small hole in the book’s spine and add some wire to hang.
Easiest DIY to make. Get some mini trophies and paint them with some detailing to create the cup. (Full DIY post here: Hufflepuff Cup DIY)
This takes a little more time and patience to do. Follow DIY post here: (Ravenclaw Diadem DIY)
Marvolo Gaunt’s Ring:
The Gaunt ring was the first Horcrux to be made by Voldemort. Dumbledore used the Gryffindor sword to destroy it as a Horcrux, although the curse upon it still remained.
You will need moldable air-dry clay (white; see link Joanns Air Dry Clay), Acrylic Paint – Black, Metallic Glorious Gold, Dark Gray, paper & pencil, Elmer’s glue, hot glue, small square of wax paper, X-acto knife
- On the paper, draw a rough template of the ring and the stone. You can find scores of images on google. Cut out the outlines. For the stone, I drew four individual triangles and glued them together to form the dome shape.
- Take a small section of clay and roll between palms to get a nice, smooth ball. Lay the ball on a flat surface and flatten it out (use a rolling pin pr even a pencil to get an even surface, make sure there is a thickness of at least 0.5 inch to give structure to your shape).
- Place your ring template on the mold and cut out it’s shape using the knife (be careful with this step).
- Using a toothpick, gently draw the fine details on the ring (this is the template I used; Gaunt Ring Design) and let the clay ring dry overnight.
- Mold and flatten another piece of clay (make sure you flatten the clay on wax paper, makes it easier to peel off). Add your stone outline over the clay and gently trace out the design using the smooth end of a pen or nail tool, to form the indent into the clay.
- Gently peel off the clay and cut off the excess portions around your square. Let dry overnight.
- Paint the ring with the metallic gold and the stone square black and let dry for 30 mins.
- Use the dark gray paint to draw 2 thin lines as borders on the stone’s edges. Add the deathly hallows to the center of the stone and let it dry. Here is the template I followed (Stone Design)
- Add 2 dots of hot glue to the 2 horn like protrusions on the top of the ring and stick the square on top. Make sure it is attached securely. You can add more hot glue and paint it gold after it dries.
