This Hedwig Owl Charm Bracelet is So Cute, My Heart Breaks.

I’ll never understand why they couldn’t go back for Hedwig.

I mean, that was just the most painful thing–to fly off.

I can’t relive this…I just can’t.

But, I couldn’t help myself, because this DIY Hedwig Owl Charm Bracelet is simple and fun.

And when I get inspired…I get inspired!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not some sculptor that museums hire to make great works of art.

No, I work with Filmo Kids (yep, that’s what my local craft store had) polymer clay, because it’s easy and available–and I am just having fun.

For this easy DIY Hedwig Owl Charm, I just picked silver and white clay then started mixing.

I wanted the body to be a little darker than the wings, so I used more silver in the body than white, then reversed the portions on the wings.

And the body was just a basic cylinder with rounded over top.

Easy.

And, like I said, I wanted the wings to be snowier in color than the body (even though they’re just two shades of white–COME ON!), so I used less silver, more white in the wings.

I also made sure to break off some of that same color for the owl’s cap–because I wanted it to match the wings.

To form the wings, I actually just followed the curve of my finger.

Like, other people use complicated patterns and I’m over here like “hey, my finger is curved!”

With the wings made and the little cap, I just smashed those on the body.

Because this is going to be on a bracelet and not a necklace, I wanted it to be as flat as possible–that way it didn’t hang on anything or break off…bracelets get a lot of beatings.

And, from there, it was just details.

Like eyes. Eyes are details.

But they were easy too, just black circles with white circles layered between.

And are those feathers on Hedwig’s belly? Yep.

Made those with my fingernail.

To get this cute DIY Hedwig Owl Charm on a bracelet, it needed an eye pin.

But those are about a mile long, so I trimmed mine down to about a 1/2 inch and then slid it into Hedwig’s head (sorry, Hedwig!).

From there it was sealing, oven and then cooling.

And dude.

I have the world’s cutest DIY Hedwig Owl Charm Bracelet!
