  • Valentine’s Day. The day we celebrate all matters of the heart: love, kindness, hope, and the hunger of the undead. This year decorate for the big day with that oft-forgotten sort of love: the longings of a flesh-starved zombie! Make this garland in festive felt and hang it up anywhere. We can’t say where you’d like to hang it - but draping it over your desk at work, or along the doorway to welcome your true love to dinner sound just perfect for this heart-felt holiday. Here’s our step-by-step guide to make your own!

  • Magic beans. Crystal shards. Enchanted acorns. Dice.

    When one travels through the woods on an epic quest, one has the occasion to carry all manner of tiny trinkets and magical items. To stow them you’ll need something secure but close at hand. A handmade belt pouch is the perfect accessory to keep your items safe (and secret, as the case may be). This pouch has a rough-hewn handmade look to it, so each one you make will be a little bit different. Here’s how to make your own.

  • It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your kitchen calculations, if you live near him.

    Cakes, breads, cookies and roasts - all the things a delicious dragons hoard boasts! Embrace your inner domestic dragon with your own pair of Smaug-inspired oven mitts designed to protect your hands like tenfold shields against the fires of stove and oven.

    Paper snowflakes are a winter staple, and there's really no easier way to make the season of warm drinks, big fireplaces, and family baking more festive. But even though the holidays are usually all about Christmas trees, stars, and menorahs, there's no reason why you can't indulge your nerdier side with this easy craft.
