For the theme party I wanted even more products for WWW, and found some templates and labels online. The templates showed how to make different boxes, that you could cut out and fold. You can of course have something inside them as well, but they do great as decoration even if they are empty.
I also found some labels and/or one side of a product. For these I had to make my own version. I found the front of the “extendable ear”-box, and decided to make a box and get some ears from the toy store to make a set out of it. The box got the homemade look, and I might try again later to make it look more like something one would sell at WWW.
For “Weasleys Wonderous Wands” I bought some tubes with glowsticks, and glued the label/cover onto them.
So there you have it – some of the new products at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
I have no idea how to knit a jumper/sweater, but I bought a knitted jumper at the thrift store, and then used duplicate stitches to create the letter I wanted. Got the idea from this video, and figured that even I could do that. Took me some time to figure out what kind of stitches I could use for that particular jumper, but just try and fail, and then try again.
I chose the letter “S” from my last name, since the letter “I” can be kind of boring. But maybe in the future I will create one with the “proper” letter.
The project would not be complete without at least one copy of the skiving snackbox. This shows up frequently in the books and the movies, and is probably the most famous product they have. The box includes puking pastilles, nosebleed nougat, fainting fancies and fever fudge.
As you can see, the design are based on their early ones, from when their workshop was in their little room at The Burrows, and not the one that you now can find at Weasleys’ wizard Wheezes.
Online I have found recipes for the items inside the box, and I plan to at least try out the Fever Fudge once, and maybe some of the others as well.
Two products from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, with a “detour” through my head. I’m sure these products doesn’t look like this, but I don’t mind. Found the labels online, and then I picked up ideas along the way from the real world. Like the anti-gravity hat is made out of an empty can of Pringles which I painted red. Inside I wanted one of those pointy hats meant for witches. But none of the four toy stores I went had one, so for now you’ll find a pirate hat inside.
For the moustache I found a fake moustache in a toy store. Ripped of the packaging, and threw it away, except the moustache-shaped plastic piece in front. Cut out a square of cardboard, painted it white, glued on the label and the plastic (with the moustache underneath of course) and I was done.
Since the “Order of the Phoenix” the Weasley twins has been kind of famous for their fireworks, so my suitcase would not be complete without it. I did a simple craft out of what I had at home. To the left is the “Bombtastic bomb”, made out of styrofoam, some cardboard and a piece of yarn, top that with two coats of paint and this is the result. I found the design for the box online, and I may make a box for it in the future.
The two rockets (middle and right) are made out of free fantasy. I took the names from actual products in the Weasleys’ line of fireworks, but I am pretty sure they don’t look like these. They are made out of the cores from paper rolls, some cardboard and paper.
