Best DIY Projects for Fantasy Nerds

Welcome, Fantasy Nerds! We thought it would be fun to share some fantasy-themed DIY projects. Here are some creative ways to bring a little magic to your world!

Parchment Paper

For a Fantasy aesthetic, parchment paper is perfect! It’s quick and easy to make. I use parchment paper in my crafts often, as well as for my Dungeons and Dragons character sheets. All you have to do is place a piece of white printer paper on a cookie sheet, lightly cover with plain coffee, and cook for five to seven minutes in the oven at 325! I also sometimes burn the edges for an ancient scroll look. 

Bullet Journal Spreads

The awesome thing about Bullet Journals is that you can do whatever you want with them! I love to create fantasy-inspired spreads in mine. With the right stickers and washi tape, it’s super easy to track your calendar or goals in magical fashion. The Ravenclaw spread is one of my favorites that I’ve done. I also found an amazing set of mermaid washi tapes that I used to create some pages. Do you use a bullet journal? If so, look for some ways to make it magical!

Potion Bottle Decoration 

You can find glass corked potion bottles at just about any craft store, and they’re only one to two dollars in price. You can add lights, crystals, flowers you’ve hand picked or even a scroll made with parchment paper! I have multiple around my house, and a shelf of them in my crafting room. I love to feel like I’m in an apothecary or a magical potion shop! 

Magic Wand

I love this clever idea for how to make your own Harry Potter wand! All you need is wooden chopsticks, a hot glue gun, and paint. You take a chopstick and make designs and/or a handle with the hot glue. Let the glue dry and then paint it however you like. The pics above are of the wands that I made!
