Re-Run: Treepens Wands & Luna's Lion Hat

For the start of 2016 I need to put my Blog on hiatus. This is due to a combination of reasons: not having material I can currently share to post about, being behind on important projects & unable to dedicate the time to develop new posts, and some personal/life things going on with the health of my Mother.

I will return to regular posting with process, tutorials, insights, advice, behind the scenes, stuff from the vault, and more before summer or hopefully sooner.
In the meantime, over the course of the hiatus, I've decided that each week in place of a new post, I'd link back to one of my favorite posts over the past 9 years of me updating this blog. Think of it as a greatest hits re-run on something you may have missed in that time. (And you can visit past posts anytime using the Blog Index: http://davidpetersen.blogspot.com/2013/12/blog-index.html)

This week:
Treepens Emporium Wands
Luna Lovegood's Lion Hat

As a big Harry Potter fan, I worked on two Wizarding craft projects in 2015 that I'm bundling together for this re-run post. First, I went into the wand business and hand crafted over 20 hardwood wands under the Pseudonym Vidad Treepens (an anagram of my name). I also helped my niece Kate with her cosplay costume for SDCC as Luna Lovegood. She wanted to wear Luna's lion hat to support Gryffindor. Below are the links to each post showing process and details of each project.
