More Harry Potter items – a Golden Snitch and Devil Mints

Here are a few more items that I’ve made over the past couple of years. The Golden Snitch came out quite well, especially after I figured out how to attach the tie-tack backing. Since the snitch is crocheted, I sewed a button to the back of it. That made a firm surface to glue on the tie tack. The wings were from a clearance sale—10 cents a pair!

The “Devil Mints” container and candies were made for the “summer of Harry Potter” 2007. I went to two Wizard Rock concerts, saw a “live podcast” of “Pottercast” from the Leaky Cauldron & was hired to entertain at the movie opening of “Order of the Phoenix” and for the book release of “Deathly Hallows.” No wonder this summer seemed bland!

I carried the Devil Mints in a small cauldron (that I also used as purse) and gave the candies away. I warned people that they had no effect on muggles but if you were a witch or a wizard,  they would cause you to sprout horns! This seems like something that the Weasley twins would carry in their shop.

If you are a witch or wizard, they cause you to sprout horns!

The candies are red & white striped mints, the labels designed in MS Word and printed on address labels, and the container is a french fry box template.
