DIY Magic Band and Magic Keeper

Hello Everyone!

As many of you already know I am headed to Disney World soon to participate in the Crochet Crowd’s Wish Upon A Stitch! I am so excited!  So to prep for the trip I have been making new Mickey Ears like this Black Rose one and I just finished a DIY Magic Band and Magic Keeper!

This is the new Magic Band 2- so that means you can pop the middle part out and put it in a Magic Keeper! I love the versatility of the new Magic Bands.

I made a Mulan Inspired Magic Band this time (Last Time I did a Steampunk Beauty and the Beast– here is the link to the Blog Post and Video)

Here is the video tutorial:

I painted a base coat with nail polish then I painted 3 coats of this beautiful red color and I painted the edges with a copper color. Use nail polish, it seems to work the best with magic bands. The last one I had held up really well and so I am doing the same thing this time.

Just like last time I added a watch face because I wear my magic band on my left hand and I didn’t want it to interfere with my watch.

Once the nail polish was dry I glued (I used E6000) on charms and rhinestones and whatever else I could find. I found a Dragons, Chinese Coins, Rhinestones, flower, and a sword for symbolizing Mulan.

Once the glue was dried I painted a final coat of base coat on the magic band. Let it all dry and you are good to go!

Fair warning-It may not work with all the paint on the magic band… I had no problems last time, but you never know with the new version. I will try it out and let you know how it goes.

These Magic Keepers are so cute, but plain black. I just have to paint everything, and I think it looks so cute now that it is done!

I painted a layer of clear gesso to prime the plastic to prep it for water marbling. For water marbling I just had a bin of water and then I placed drops of nail polish and swirled them around. Once I was happy with my marbling I dipped my Magic Keeper in the water and it turned out so cute!

Once it was dry I added some holographic nail polish on top to add some sparkle, you can never have too much sparkle.  Once it is all dry I added a layer of base coat on the top to seal it, now it is good to go for my week at Disney!
