game of thrones DIY

The time has arrived, puddings, for the final DIY in the Game of Thrones series. And no, I don’t have an explanation for referring to you as puddings. But, ask yourself, do you really need one? (an explanation, that is, not a pudding, everyone needs a pudding). As usual, I have digressed from the topic at hand. Lettuce (clearly got food on ma mind) retrace our footsteps. So technically, this is two DIYs but they both require the same kind of materials and skills, so I have decided to pair them up. Also, this way they won’t feel lonely.

Let us begin. Valar DIYhaeris (huehuehue).

Antler Crown

For reference, this is the crown we’ve attempted to re-create:

Game of Throne Crown

Things you’ll need:

– White chart paper
– Basic drawing skills
– Scissors
– Glue
– Brown & gold poster colours

Step 1: Make your base

You need a sturdy-ish circle around which you’ll place the rest of your cut-outs. We folded some chart paper and stapled it into a circular shape. You can make the shape as big or as small as you’d like. Really depends on the size of the head the crown is being made for.

Step 2: Draw & cut out

Consider these three shapes to be one part of the pattern. Repeating the pattern twice will give you enough to go around the crown.

Step 3: Glue

First glue the pattern together and then glue it onto your circular base.

Step 4: Paint

We used brown and gold because we wanted it to have that worn, antique-ish look. But you could just use gold if you want to save some paint and effort.

House Banners

This is probably the simplest out them all. However, intermediate drawing and cutting skills are required.

What you’ll need:

– Coloured chart papers (colours will depend on which houses you’d like to represent)
– A pen/pencil + skillz to draw
– Scissors
– Glue
– Ribbon

You can barely see the outline on this but it’s not just the picture, I had to hold the paper up to my face to make out what I had drawn -.-

SO proud of this one. Only took an hour lolz

Dividing this process into steps would be just plain embarrassing (for me and you, both). So I’m just gonna put it in bullet points for our combined sanity:

  • Cut your chart paper out into a banner shape (an upside down V at the bottom)
  • Draw and cut out the house sigils (the Targaryen one was the most complicated, I must admit)
  • Glue the sigils onto your chart paper banners
  • String all the banners up with each other using a ribbon
