Picture of Hogwarts houses bracelets

Last week, I made the shocking discovery that I didn't have a Harry Potter related instructable. This may sound like something not that shocking, but for me it is :) I decided I wanted to make something that didn't scream Harry Potter, but when taking a second look being able to notice that it is indeed Harry Potter related. The steps showing the finished bracelets include the text from the sorting hat song in Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone.

I hope you like this instructable, if you do, I would love to know! :D

I beat you to it, just!

These are cool, but my next Harry Potter event is a Cub camp - I think these are too fragile for a weekend in a tent...

emilyvanleemput (author)  Kiteman1 year ago

Haha thanks, they would be a bit too fragile indeed ;)

I'm actually already working on a second Harry Potter project, it would have been the first, but I'm still waiting to receive the parts...

Awesome bracelet! love the colors of the beads!

Thank you so much Muhaiminah!!

What a great Idea Emily :). This looks so gorgeous :)

Thank you so much Tarun!! :D

Looking at the main picture I thought that is one bracelet. We can use the same beading technique to join them with each other :)..make sense?

It sure does make sense, it's definitely a possibility when making the bracelet :)
