DIY Harry Potter Series – Mini ‘Hall of Prophecies’ Ornament

I got this idea from Pinterest and just had to try it. Plus it would be a ‘Order of Phoenix’ themed ornament for my year long Potter exchange group. Love when everything fits together :).

Materials:

  1. Old altoids or mint tin
  2. Acrylic paints – Black, midnight blue, color shift blue
  3. Old cardboard
  4. Hot glue, Mod Podge
  5. Round beads and rubber earring closures
  6. Prophecy sign label (printed from google)
  7. Black ribbon

Process:

  • Clean and dry the tin. Add 2 coats of black paint and dry in between. Add a light swirly coat of blue over the black paint and dry.
  • Measure the insides of the tin and cut out 2-3 pieces of cardboard to fit inside like shelves. Paint them black.
  • Paint the earring backs black and dry. These will form the stands on which the prophecies lay.
  • Paint the beads in the color-shift blue ( I had some glitter paint and used those as well).
  • Once dry, stick the beads on the earring closures using hot glue.
  • Stick these on the cardboard shelf and attach the shelf to the tin (I added 3 prophecies per shelf for a total of 3 shelves).
  • I had 2 spare beads left that I attached to the inner cover of the tin.
  • Stick your label to the outside of the tin and add ribbon for hanging.
