DIY Bowtruckle – Tutorial

So how many of you just loved Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them? Awesome wasn’t it? I saw it twice and I want to see it again. And I am totally in love with Newt. ❤

So watching it twice and dreaming about it all the time, I just had to make at least one, ONE of the creatures, right? 😀

SO WE MADE OUR OWN PET BOWTRUCKLE! And ours is almost as cute as Pickett. 🙂


And you can make one too because it is super simple.

All you need is a wire, glue gun, green colour. (I used acrylic) and green paper.

So first twist and turn the wires to get a branch shape that looks like it has two arms and 3-4 legs. (I made 5 because you can make your bowtruckle stand easily.)


Don’t worry if the joins are a little wobbly because that will be taken care of once you smear it with glue from the glue gun.

Now get your glue gun in action and start covering it up with glue all over. Make it a little thick towards the top end to make a bowtruckle face.


Once the glue is all dry, start painting it green. Or get your kid to do it like I did. Ri had fun painting this too.


Once the paint dries up, cut two tiny leaf shapes from a green paper and glue it to the head.

Make two tiny black eyes with black colour or sharpies and you are done.


Keep your bowtruckle in your pocket, or on the shelf.


Or on your Christmas tree. Though this one doesn’t seem to like that much. 😀


So go, you magical folks, go, make one today. And do let me know in the comments if you did make one. I would love to see the pictures. ❤
