How to create three awesome Doctor Who crafts
I was browsing around on Pinterest where I saw some awesome Doctor Who craft projects! Which got me thinking, why not make three Doctor Who crafts and write my blog post about it! And because I am a huge Eleventh Doctor fan I decided to be inspired by his iconic line, “Bow ties are cool“.
Bow tie necklace
The first thing that I made was a bow tie necklace. For this craft project you will need felt, I chose red, hot glue, scissors, necklace chain, clasp, and jump rings.
First, cut the felt into a strip. Mine measured 6.5 inches by 1.5 inches.
Second, hot glue a line at one end of the felt and attach it to the other side. This creates a loop.
Third, place a dot of hot glue in the center of the loop and squeeze the sides together.
Fourth, cut a thin strip of felt. Mine ended up being 4 inches by 1 inch. I ended up cutting some excess off.
Fifth, glue one end of the felt to the back of the bow wrap it tightly around. Glue it in place.
Sixth, cut the chain to the length you want for your necklace. Mine was about 20 inches.
Seventh, attach a jump ring to one end and a clasp to the other. This creates a loop.
Eighth, cut the loop in half and attach jump rings to both ends.
Ninth, flip the bow tie over and put a dot of hot glue in to corners and place the jump rings in the hot glue.
And you’re done with that craft project! Now on to the next one! A bow tie ornament for your Christmas tree! For this project you will need felt, hot glue, scissors, crimp beads, a crimping tool and some fishing line.
Bow tie ornament
First, create a tiny bow tie the same way you did the first one. You want it to be small enough to fit through the opening of a class ornament.
Second, feed the fishing line through two of the holes in the top of the ornament. Slide the crimp tube/bead onto the two threads of fishing line and crimp it closed.
Here is a link I found on Youtube if you are unfamiliar with how to use a crimp tube/bead.
Third, place a another crimp tube/bead on the fishing line, thread the fishing line through the bow time, and crimp the two stands together.
Fourth, gently push the bow tie into the ornament and place the top back on it.
Now you have a lovely ornament to place on your Christmas tree!!
Bow tie ceramic bowl
The third craft is the easiest one to make. All that you will need is ceramic item, preferably white, and an oil based paint Sharpie.
I’m sure you’ve seen those images on Pinterest where people who bake on Sharpie to a ceramic mug. Well I tried that before and it didn’t work very well for me. But this Sharpie is intended to write on glass.
First, get your ceramic item, I got a white bowl from the dollar store.
Second, write your saying with the Sharpie on it.
Update: The marker has washed off of my bowl. I think it is because I didn’t “bake” it in the oven this time. 12.19.2016
Now your done! And you have three awesome Doctor Who crafts to show for it! So what do you think? Do you agree with the Eleventh Doctor? Are bow ties cool?
