It’s time for another round of Craft Lightning and I am so excited to see all of the Halloween crafts that can be made in 15 minutes or less! I am a huge unapologetic Harry Potter fan, and as I was cleaning the playroom, I found an abandoned baby doll that gave me the idea to make a Harry Potter Mandrake.
If you’re unfamiliar with mandrakes, here are a couple of pictures of mandrakes from the Harry Potter movies.
For this mandrake craft, you will need:
- baby doll
- flower pot
- brown Rustoleum
- fake leaves (loose and with a stem)
Start by spray painting your pot. You don’t want to completely paint it. Just do enough to make it look old, used, and dirty.
Spray paint your doll and leaves. With everything, leave a bit of color peeking through in places.
When the doll is dry, cut a small slice in the top of its head. Stick the leaves with stems in. I also added a few scribbles with a black sharpie to try to take away more of the “cute” look.
Fill your pot with dirt and any extra leaves. Plant your mandrake.
When your mandrake has matured, it’s time to harvest for use in your next potion.
I hope you enjoyed my mandrake! Make sure you check out all of the other crafts for this month’s Craft Lightning!
