What I made my brother for Christmas

My brother is a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I drew his name for Christmas (2011). So with a limited budget, I set to work on some crafts I knew he would love!

Fluffy while owl ornament

Harry pillow





I got my owl inspiration from these cute guys I saw at the local nursery.

 And the pillow I copied this idea from this picture my brother posted on Facebook. These pillows are made by a crafter in Brazil.


Argh Matey, a Jolly Roger craft!




For our family reunion we had a pirate theme. To get into the festivities I made our family some cute jolly roger tee shirts. I used freezer paper as a stencil. If you would like to make some fun freezer paper tee shirts too, follow this tutorial or this one.

I went online and found some cute jolly roger clip art and traced the image onto the freezer paper.
I used regular acrylic craft paint (like you can find at Wal-Mart) but fabric paint might be better. I was fine with how it turned out using the stuff I had on hand.
