This photo here shows my completed origami sword which is based on the sword called Sting which was owned by both the characters Bilbo and his younger cousin Frodo Baggins. The reason why the blade of the sword is blue (this project is worked with 2 sheets of paper) is to highlight the magical property of this Elvish forged weapon which glowed blue in warning when orcs were nearby.

Fused Perler and Hama beads are a fun craft that many kids as well as grown-ups (like me!) like to indulge in. This is a refrigerator magnet that I made and (as any Lord of the Ring or Hobbit fan would know) it is based on the round, green door of the Bag End home that belongs to Bilbo and then Frodo Baggins.

Make your own little wee Hobbit home from felt. I've been rather obsessed with fantasy houses since I was young and I love sewing different creations from felt to make free-standing plush designs. You can use these as pincushions. Of course, Bilbo's door would be completely round but you can add in that detail yourself.
