Harry Potter Golden Snitch Motorized Wing Ring #ElectronicHalloween

FUP9454I6C2LLR6 MEDIUM

Not to brag, but I’ve been a Harry Potter fan for over fifteen years. So, naturally, when I came across this incredible Golden Snitch project tutorial, I nearly took flight (but, alas, my broom was in the shop). Check out this great project if you’re leaning towards a Hogwarts Halloween this year.

This is just a quick build for those Harry Potter Quidditch fans out there. Based on same technology found in the Motorized Quidditch Golden Snitch,

This is a smaller version that can be worn as a ring. So yeah, Go Ravenclaw!

Craft your own Harry Potter Quidditch Golden Snitch to wear on your finger. Capture the magic when it’s wings rotate with a sleight of hand on your command. Conjure up one today.

This is a great first project for the little crafting wizards out there.

CAUTION: The object itself and contents contain small parts and are not to be taken internally.
