Some cute DIY wall art! This would look absolutely adorable in a kid’s room, but it’s so pretty that I think you’ll want it somewhere you can see all the time. Cheerful by day, stunning by night, and it only takes about an hour and a half to make!
What you’ll need:
·A gay, cheesy fanfic extract
·A pendant ring (from crafts sotres)
1. Take a paragraph from your favorite fanfic or book and print it or photocopy it. Make sure your printer is not in “Draft” mode.
2. Clean the coin completely and place it just where you want it to be, over what you want to have in the pendant.
3. Cut roughly around that specific spot. Cover the coin with glue and paste it behind the text, using the light against it to guide you.
*If your paper isn’t thick enough, you may want to paste a blank piece of paper underneath your text as a base.
4. Cut out the surplus.
5. Put just a little bit glue over the text, spread it outwars and let it dry.
6. Add a thick, thick layer of glue. This will act as the acrylic that will protect your pendant once it’s completely dry. I suggest you to let it dry overnight.
If you want to, you can add a second layer once the first one is dry. This will make it look more… real.
Finally, paste the pendant ring on the back of the coin.
·Try avoiding smut. You don’t want to walk around with the word “pounding” hanging from your neck, do you?
·If anyone asks about it, try not to panic and hide it underneath your shirt.
·Be prepared for fangirling outbrusts. Just thinking that you have your OTP in your necklace may give you feels.
No, I did NOT cut the HP book. Guys, look at what the text says, “Harry loved Draco”. As far as I know, that line is not in the book.
I just found these! I made ‘em in a beading class at school last year.
I’ve taken that beading class every year of high school, and all I ever made are bracelets haha
I don’t. really know what to do with all these bracelets, though. I don’t think I’ll ever wear them…
the Link one at the bottom is incomplete, and will probably never be finished. Oh well.
Bored this summer? Build a TARDIS!
Infinitely faster than growing one.

TARDIS quilt for my wee nephew Ronan, born yesterday. I have full confidence that his parents will raise him to be the perfect Companion. Or Ronan the Barbarian.
“Hello, Stormageddon. It’s The Doctor, here to help. Be quiet. Go to sleep. No really stop crying. you’ve got a lot to look forward to you know. A normal human life on earth, mortgage repayments, the 9 to 5, a persistent nagging sense of spiritual emptiness. Save the tears for later, boyo. Oh, that was crabby. No, that was old. But I am old Stormy. I am so old. So near the end. But you, Alfie Owens. You are so young, aren’t you? And you know, right now, everything’s ahead of you. You could be anything. You could walk among the stars. They don’t actually look like that, you know; they are rather more impressive. You know, when I was little like you, I dreamt of the stars. I think it’s fair to say, in the language of your age, that I lived my dream.” — The Doctor, “Closing Time”
