52 Weeks of Literary Crafts

Okay, so…confession time. I’m totally obsessed with those 365 days or 52 weeks challenges. They’re a ton of fun, and best of all they really force you to keep a schedule and work harder at being creative. So I asked myself, how can I make a 52 weeks challenge for myself involving books? Obviously I could challenge myself to read more…but I really don’t want to add any pressure to my reading. More pressure than I’ve already put on myself, that is
Next I thought about all the crafts I like working on, and I realized it really wasn’t that big of a leap to go and try to stretch that out into a literary craft a week. In fact, it might be downright fun! Especially since I’m usually working on something anyway.

My official challenge for myself is as stands: Every week I will post a new craft I worked on. It has to fit a literary theme. I can use patterns (for knitting) and tutorials if I feel so inclined. The point really, is to see how many clever literary crafts are out there, and just how many I can make. Filling my house up with literary objects is just a bonus.
I will share as many details about each project as possible; from the basic materials I got, to linking to the tutorial or pattern I used. I promise that I’ll give full credit to any ideas or tutorials/patterns that were used.
Fair warning here; a lot of my crafts are going to be Harry Potter themed (the house colors make for a lot of potential and can be applied to so many different mediums). Likewise a lot of my projects will be knitted. I knit to relax, so it’s only natural for me to blend these two together.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for a literary project, please feel free to reach out! It could just be a stray thought, or a fully-fledged tutorial. Either way I promise you I won’t complain.

Side note for sake of honesty: some of these projects will end up being gifts (the holidays are coming) and thus I won’t be sharing all of my projects in the order made. I don’t want to spoil the surprise for any gifts, so updates on those projects will be held until the item has safety been gifted.
