Enchanted Eggs Contest

Greetings Potter crafters!

I’m excited to announce that the Crafty Witches’ crafty event for April is a contest! Crafty Witch Amber bounced this idea off of me awhile back and instantly my brain was off and running with inspiration.

While not every Potter fan celebrates Easter or the Easter Bunny, we see quite a few instances of egg crafts and Easter egg gifties in the Potterverse. In honor of our Matron Crafty Witch Molly Weasley, our challenge to you is to craft egg shaped or related items!

Our 2 rules are:

1. Entry must be egg shaped. Beyond that, all bets are off. So, knitting, crocheting, decoupage, baking, paper mache, chicken egg, dragon egg, plastic egg, fabric, Styrofoam, mosaic, bowling ball, kitchen sink, whatever¦just bring us as many ideas as you have!
2. Entry must be Harry Potter themed. Whether it’s a set in Gryffindor colors, chocolate eggs decorated by Mrs. Weasley, traditionally dyed eggs with a twist, dragon eggs with flair, egg shaped cupcakes with surprises inside¦surprise us with your creativity!!!

Start your planning now! Starting April first you may submit your entries to [email protected]. Please attach your photos, a description of your craft, and include your name and/or Leaky Lounge user name.


Drumroll, please…………

And the winners are:
