Lemony Snicket Quotes DIY Bottle Cap Necklaces

affiliate DISCLOSURE

I love a good quote about reading and Lemony Snicket Quotes are some of the best!

I’m super excited that A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket is getting another chance this time on Netflix. I really liked the movie version I thought it was gorgeous and got the wacky quirkiness of the books.

Easiest way to make upcycled bottle Cap necklaces and Lemony Snicket quotes

I read a bunch of the books which I think are lots of fun for your young reader. A lot of silliness and adventure. And there are tons of them. I didn’t get through all of them because I just don’t do middle grade (or this might be younger even, chapter books?) that well and like most book series for this age group the stories are pretty formulaic but they are still fun.

So I’m excited for the new life and to celebrate I thought I’d pull together some of my favorite book and reading related Lemony Snicket quote because there are tons. And of course I had to make a couple into some bookish necklaces because I can’t pass up a good book quote necklace!

What You Need

What to Do

  1. Print and punch out your images.
  2. Glue image into your bottle cap and allow to dry 1 hour.
  3. Add a thick layer of dimensional magic and let dry at least 3 hours.
  4. Glue a necklace bail or pin back onto the bottle cap!

I just love how these turned out! In the past we used to do Resin Bottle Cap pins and necklaces but I love that this technique is SO fast, simple and you don’t have to mix a huge batch of resin. You could easily just make one at a time.

DIY Holly Shoe Jingle Bells Tutorial

I’d love to put a little Christmas spirit in your step, quite literally. I made these adorable DIY Holly Shoe Jingle Bells and I’m giddy about how they turned out.

Love this simple Christmas craft. DIY holly shoe bells tutorial and free pattern

Today I’m joining in on I Heart Naptime‘s annual Crazy Christmas Event. Every year Jamielyn invites loads of talented bloggers to share tons of awesome crafts, recipes, and printables perfect for Christmas. Hop over to see how I made these fun Holly Shoe Bells. P.S. I made the pattern in 3 sizes baby, kiddo and teen/adult.

 

UPDATED: The following tutorial originally appeared on I Heart Naptime on 11/29/2016

I love the festive little jingle the little holly adds to every step. But more than that I love how quick and easy this little craft comes together.

Such a fun way to dress up our shoes for Christmas. Easy jingle bell holly shoe accessories. Full tutorial and free pattern.

This is easy enough that even elementary school kids who can do basic hand sewing could make their own if you help them cut out the leaves.

What You Need

How to make Christmas holly shoes that jingle. Easy craft tutorial

What to Do

  1. Cut 2 holly leaves out for each shoe you want to dress up. There are three sizes on the pattern so they can work for baby shoes, kids, and teens/ adults.
  2. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and then fold that in half to find the middle.
  3. Sandwich the middle of the pipe cleaner between the points of two leaves. Take a couple stitched to sew the pipe cleaner to the leaves.
  4. Thread one bell onto your needle and stitch in place. Repeat for the rest of bells.
  5. Take a couple extra stitches to secure the sewing in place before knotting. This will help prevent the stitch from pulling through if the bells get man handled.
  6. Secure the bling to the shoe by threading one side through a shoelace hole and twisting. Alternatively you can simply slide the pipe cleaner under the shoelace and twist to fasten it in place.

I think these turned out so stinking cute. My 2 1/2 year old little boy got SO excited when I put one on his shoe he LOVED dancing and spinning around.

And as adorable as I think it is I love that when we went to watch his cousin’s gymnastic competition I could quickly and easily remove the holly so we wouldn’t be disruptive.

Harry Potter Wand Holster Tutorial

I have wanted to make a wand holder for a long time not but totally put it off. So I’m SUPER excited to share this tutorial today because I adore how it came out!How fun a wand holster to carry your harry potter wands. Great sewing tutorial and how to make DIY wands too.

Too fun! DIY Harry Potter Magic wand holster. Sewing tutorial.

Get the Harry Potter Shirts here

This tutorial is a little more complicated sewing than I normally share because of the zipper and all the steps but it’s still not that hard of a project but if you prefer to just purchase one you can get one here. Oh and if you don’t already have a wand to put in your holster I have a super fun and super easy Wand Tutorial.

Have your wands at the ready at all times with this Harry Potter inspired DIY wand holster. Sewing tutorial

My little guy has been carrying a wand around since we made them. He took one on a walk today and it made my geeky Harry Potter loving heart explode.

What You Need

  • Holster Fabric
  • Strap Fabric – adults will need two strips of 3″x44″ fabric, one strip for the kid size.
  • Small Zipper (optional)
  • D- Ring (optional)
  • Snaps (optional)

What to do

Before I start I just wanted to say I wanted mine to be adjustable and have a zipper pocket so that makes things a little more complicated. BUT you could leave out the zipper and just make your strap the right size for the wearer or even use a safety pin instead of snaps and that would save some work.

1. Cut your fabric out. You can see the general shape I used. I meant to make a free pattern but I totally forgot. I will update this post with a pattern that can be downloaded if you want to save it or pin it and check back later.

2.  Make the straps. For the adult size sew the short ends together. Iron your strap fabric in half  (so it’s skinnier) and sew down the length.  Turn right side out and iron.

3. Make the Wand Pocket. The wand pocket fabric should be about 3″x 7″ depending on your wand length. Do the same as you did for the strap.

Steps to making a wand holster

4. Tuck in one side of the wand pocket tube and sew closed. Position on the holder piece and sew down along both sides. Make sure it’s just one layer of fabric NOT folded.

5. Open both holster pieces and with right sides together sew across the V to connect them at the bottom edge.

6. Mark where your zipper should go and then with right sides together sew the the raw side edges closed of the non- zipper and and up to where the bottom of the zipper will go. You do want to leave the top edges open. (If you want to skip the zipper just sew it all and leave the top openings.)

Make a zipper pouch wand holder

7. Sew in the zipper.

8. Turn right side out and tuck under the top edges on both sides.

9. Cut off 3 inches from your strap, loop it through the D ring and tuck it into one opening. Sew closed. (If you are making a fitted strap you can skip the D ring and just sew a strap that is the correct length tucking in top openings)

Sew an adjustable magic wand holster perfect for harry potter fans.

10. Sew the raw side of the other strap in the other opening. At this point you can use a safety pin to make your strap adjustable or put in snaps. Just mark where you want your snaps and add them.

How awesome, magic wand holsters. Perfect for Harry Potter lovers. This would be great to take to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

We’ve all had fun running around with our wands this Summer. And yes the kids love it as much as I do ;)
