11. Deathday Party (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

The passageway leading to Nearly Headless Nick's party had been lined with candles, too, though the effect was far from cheerful: These were long, thin, jet-black tapers, all burning bright blue, casting a dim, ghostly light even over their own living faces. […]  They turned a corner and saw Nearly Headless Nick standing at a doorway hung with black velvet drapes. "My dear friends," he said mournfully. "Welcome, welcome . . . so pleased you could come. . . ." He swept off his plumed hat and bowed them inside.

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling


Description: I chose grey and white as main colours, and I incorporated the black candles and black velvet drapes in the form of black silk fabric strips. I decided against adding blue for the candle light, as the grey and white seemed more ghostly to me. The white parts are shiny wild silk, and I added matte white beads with a silver core.
Fibre Types
