When I realized that I only needed the wire on one edge…
I found that the wire ribbon worked perfectly!
I found that after I cut a simple wing shape from the ribbon, I could tuck the wire ends in behind the ornament clasp at the top. I reinforced the connection with hot glue. I didn’t like the straight white lines on the white wire ribbon, so I drew my own lines with glue and glitter, to look more like the official Golden Snitch. I was so excited…I didn’t really draw the lines very carefully, so they could be a little neater (thinner) and more consistent for a more Golden-Snitchy look.
I found the cute curly ornament hangers at the dollar store (they could be spray painted gold),
as well as the dollar store boxes for easy wrapping and storage.
The box says “I open at the close”…just like the Golden Snitch in the 7th book….
just in case anyone needs an extra clue
for what this little Christmas ornament really is…for years to come!
Guess which Harry Potter fans were the first to receive their very own Golden Snitch!?
