In keeping with our Christmas month, this week we are making a Dobby the House Elf Stocking holder!
I love the idea of a Dobby the house elf stocking holder. Visualize this with me for a minute… Harry Potter gives Dobby his sock and sets him free from the Malfoys. Dobby then goes home and, because it’s such a treasure to him, hangs his sock up on display. *serious heart tugs*
Now, a word of caution before you embark on this craft. Take some extra time before starting to figure out how you want to size your Dobby the house elf silhouette on your wood block and where the hook would eventually go. Trust me, you’ll thank me for this later. If you don’t believe me, watch the video tutorial below to catch my funny, yet unfortunate, placement mistake.
With that in mind, let’s begin!
- Dobby silhouette print out
- Wooden block
- Mod podge
- White pencil
- Cup hook
- Optional: paint
- Paint your wooden block (optional)
- Cut out your Dobby the house elf silhouette
- Adhere silhouette to the wooden block using mod podge
- Write your message onto Dobby’s body
- Work your hook into the wood
Now, hang your stocking and Dobby is a free elf! Even typing those words makes my heart swoon.
