Subliminal Rabbit


A few years ago, Stephenie Meyer had a dream about an average girl and a beautiful vampire talking in a meadow. From this dream grew the fantastically popular "Twilight" series, and a crew of devoted Twihards split between Team Edward and Team Jacob. But could she have ever envisioned an Edward Cullen crochet portrait or a bevy of "Twilight" cakes? 

The fourth installment of the "Twilight" saga, "Breaking Dawn Part 1," comes out this week and to celebrate the premiere, we've compiled some "Twilight"-inspired crafts. 

What are you doing (or making) for "Twilight"?

'Twilight' Saga Cakes

Each of these custom cakes was inspired by a cover from the "Twilight" saga. So whether you're Team Edward or Team Jacob, there's plenty to go around!

Bella's Silver Moonstone Ring

Ever picture marrying Edward Cullen? Hate to break it to you, but he's not real. In any case, you can still shoot for Robert Pattinson! And here's a moonstone ring inspired by the one Edward uses to propose to Bella.

dreamcatchers from Jacob to Bella
Jacob's Dreamcatcher

In "New Moon" Jacob gives Bella a special dreamcatcher for her 18th birthday. You can replicate his dreamcatcher with a seashell, shark's tooth and wolf charm, or customize it with your own charms for a unique gift!

Jealous of Edward's pasty yet sparkly complexion? Then get yourself some glittery soap! Note: best results when basking in sunlight.
