Hedwig Necklace - For Harry Potter Fans

This post has been a long time in coming (as in the pictures have my old watermark on them)...but better late than never, eh?  I'm always on the lookout for something different, inexpensive, and easy to mail for Mother's Day since our kids have extra moms and grandmas to remember.  (Our oldest two kids are adopted in open adoptions.)  This is a little late for a Mother's Day post, but perhaps it can help someone out for Halloween or dare I say...Christmas?

Katie and Seth have both been into Harry Potter like crazy this year, and since their birthmoms and most of the grandmas live far enough away that we don't see them often, I thought Hedwig carrying a little love note would be just the thing for a Mother's Day gift.

Gotta love a jewelry project that requires power tools.  When I bought the owls, I thought they had a go...but the drill took care of it.

And I loved how they turned out.

They turned out so well, that I ordered more to keep on hand as gifts...

...I'm thinking I'm going to need to try making one into a bookmark too...

And if you don't feel up to making one...I've got several for sale in my shop

If you're looking for the perfect gift to slip inside your Hogwarts Letter, check out the  Hedwig Necklaces in my Etsy shop.  You can find them here.

I have lots of Harry Potter inspired gifts and fun things in my shop.  The selection is always changing.

See these links for more details about other Harry Potter themed crafts we've done...and be sure to check back because I'll be adding more as I get them written up.
