Julia Soder: Wizarding World Picture Frames | Fans of the Wizarding World


Hi everyone, my name is Julie and today I’m going to teach you guys how to make these really cool Wizarding World frames. But first, I think I’m looking a little too much like a muggle. Much better, let’s get started. So we’re gonna start with the wand frame. You’re gonna start by painting the entire frame brown. What I’m doing here is eyeing dots of brown around the frame and I’m also gonna add some very small dots of black around the frame as well. What I’m gonna do is I’m gonna blend these with my paintbrush to create a woodgrain kind of effect. So for this next part, we’re gonna be making the little wands that go in the centre of the frame. So for these what I did was I took a few chopsticks and cut them in half down to size so that they would fit in the middle part. Then what I did was I heated up my hot glue gun and what I do is I put the hot glue on the chopstick itself whilst swirling it sort of to create a wand pattern. And for each of the wands, I did an individual pattern just like how all the wands are different. Next I’m gonna paint the wands in a similar way that I did for the frames so mixing brown and black and just painting over all of the hot glue. After that, I seal the wands using a glossy water-based sealer in order to give them a nice shine. Next what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna take my gold paint and create sort of an antiqued effect by lightly brushing it onto the wands. After that, I made a handful of full-sized wands using full-sized chopsticks, these are for the long parts. Then I assembled all of the chopsticks onto the frame and hot glued them into place. Next we’re gonna work on our Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans frame. For this one, you’re gonna need a wooden frame just like before, some multicoloured paints in the colours that you wanna paint your beans, some sealer, some air dry clay and I think that’s it. So what you’re gonna do is take out the glass pane of your frame I’m gonna move these aside and take out the robbins egg blue paint – that’s the signature colour for Honeydukes. So I’m just gonna go ahead and paint the entire frame in that blue colour. Next, I’m gonna go ahead and get my air dry clay and pull out a good amount of it. Erm, once I have that out, what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna start rolling the clay into little jelly beans. So what you’re gonna wanna do is pinch off a pretty small sized amount sort of like jelly bean size and roll that into a little ball. And then what you’re gonna do is sort of squish it so that it looks a bit like a kidney bean or a jelly bean that it’s supposed to be. And you’re gonna go ahead and make enough of those to cover the frame. And with this being air dry clay you let it dry for a few hours before it’s ready to paint. So now I’m gonna paint the jelly beans, this part can get a little bit messy so make sure to have plenty of paper towels nearby. I’m just gonna divide the number of jelly beans that I have into the number of paints that I have. So for me, I had about 5 or 6 colours of paint so I’m gonna paint 1 fifth of the jelly beans each colour. Next, I’m gonna hot glue all the jelly beans onto the frame arranging them in a pattern that I like. Next, I paint the sealer all over the jelly beans to give them a realistic shine. And that’s it, so here’s the final product with the photos inside. I think they turned out really cute and hope you make some yourself. Thanks for watching.
