May the craft be with you

It is no secret that I am a huge Harry Potter fan and all round lover of things classed as "nerdy" so what better theme for this weeks Tiddlybits than Nerd Crafts?!

It's often the simplest ideas that are the best and this tutorial from Dream a Little Bigger showing how to turn a Kleenex box into a piece of lego is genius!

Speaking of simply genius ideas why not turn your plant pots into your favourite superhero? Like Batman for instance (totally doing this!).  Thanks to Jan Tracy for pinning!

The ultimate dream for any Harry Potter fan is to own a real wand but alas that can not be. Console yourself by making yourself a fake but awesome one by following this tutorial from Please Give Peas a Chance

Or if you haven't got a glue gun to hand why not take out your scraps of paper and get quilling. You could make beautiful art like Ironman below or one of your favourite Sci-fi/fantasy characters. You can find more inspiration from The Mary Sue here.

Or if that seems too complicated, then follow the lead of Anthony Herrera Designs and download any one of these PDF patterns and make awesome Star Wars snowflakes for fantastic and unique Christmas decorations. 

I hope that's inspired you to get geeky with your crafts but if not head over to the Pinterest board where there are loads more ideas including creating jewellery from old remote controls and Lord of the Rings door hangers.
