DIY Felt Bird Cage Ornament. You may know that I have a very very loud cockatoo. So this ornament reminds me of him. Tutorial from Zakka Life here. It’s so tiny I can see it as a brooch or something else. I would love to receive something like this as a gift - so much better than a meaningless something that I’ll never use.
Platform 9 3/4
This is an assortment of licensed products, thrift store finds, miscellaneous purchased items and a few handmade items:
Licensed Products: NECO Platform sign, plastic Firebolt, Quidditch goggles, Gryffindor scarf.
Thrift Store: Large trunk and two smaller trunks, plastic cauldron.
Miscellaneous Purchases: White owl (online), round cage (Ross).
I also wrapped three different sized boxes in plain brown paper and tied with string to represent Harry’s purchases in Diagon Alley. I think I may write some store labels on them to make them more interesting. I also added a box of Owl Treats (below).
In my younger years when I was feeling trapped in a small conservative town in CT, I acutally purchased a guilded birdcage and was going to wrap glass beads bought in the Czech Republic around it with a fake bird inside. I thought it was too gaudy and never finished it.
