Introduction: 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

Step 1: Materials

To make a Hogwarts house bracelet, you will need the following:

  • wire
  • pliers
  • beads matching the colours you want
  • round pencil
  • closure

Step 2: Make the Jump Rings

Wrap the wire around the pencil to create the circles. Take it off and cut them apart to finish your jump rings.

Step 3: Putting the Bracelet Together

Take one of the jump rings you made last step and open it. Add two beads to it, if you are using two colours of beads, add one of both colours. Close the jump ring. Take a second jump ring and add it to one of the beads. While it is still opened, add a bead in the right color. Keep repeating this to create the bracelet. I ended up using 15 beads.

Step 4: Make It Wearable

Add two jump rings to both ends of the bracelet. Next, take your wire and round nose pliers. Make one double ring and one partly double ring. The partly double ring is because the closure I used couldn't fit over the double part. Add the double ring to one end and the partly double ring with closure to the other end.

Step 5: Gryffindor

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve and chivalry,

Set Gryffindors apart.

Step 6: Slytherin

Or perhaps in Slytherin,

You'll make your real friends,

Those cunning folk use any means,

To achieve their ends.

Step 7: Hufflepuff

You might belong in Hufflepuff,

Where they are just and loyal,

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,

And unafraid of toil.

Step 8: Ravenclaw

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

If you've a steady mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind.

Step 9: Hogwarts

I really hope you liked this instructable, if you have made a hogwarts house bracelet yourself, I would love to see a picture of it :)

I used gauge 20 silver plated german style wire (at least, that's what it says on the package :) Thicker wire would work as well, but I wouldn't go thinner.

"Last week, I made the shocking discovery that I didn't have a Harry Potter related instructable."

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...

author
emilyvanleemput (author)Kiteman2014-02-23

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...

Tarun Upadhyaya (author)2014-02-23

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

author

Thank you so much Tarun!! :D

author

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?

author

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