Hogwarts Houses Bracelets




Introduction: Hogwarts Houses Bracelets

About: Master student Industrial Design & Science Education and Communication at Eindhoven University of Technology

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 :)

    wow... you have been up to a lot lately =P. nice 'ible, wish i was a girl so i wouldn't feel ashamed wearing something like this =P

    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.
